Desert bloom, South Africa and Namibia
July - September

Hardy seeds tucked deep inside the soil lie dormant for years, flourishing into a kaleidoscope of plants, including nearly 4,000 species. Daisy season is when dusty valleys are carpeted with flaming orange daisies and marigolds, attracting exotic butterflies, birds and the Earth's smallest tortoise - the Speckled Padloper.
