Darling's wild flower garden
The Darling Wild flower show is held in September each year when the wild flowers come into bloom.
Some of the exhibits are set out in the halls of the showgrounds in the town but by and large the best flower viewing is in the fields in and around Darling.
On the weekend of the show there are large crowds to see the flowers so on my visit I took the opportunity of beating the crowds and went to visit the area on a week day.
Some of the wild flowers growing in the veld
Leaving Malmesbury we made our way to Darling and just near the Darling Wine Co-op we came across our first fields of flowers.
There were fields of white and orange flowers with a few purple ones thrown in as well.
Driving further in the direction of Darling we came across a large field which was absolutely covered with Arum lilies.
Although some of the lilies were past their prime they still put on a lovely show and were worth stopping to see.
