Misty morning

This morning was raining softly and Table Mountain was shrouded in mist. We went for a walk up Devil's Peak and came across this beautiful Aristea macrocarpa all wet with rain and festooned with spider's webs. It is a member of the Iris family (Iridaceae) but doesn't seem to have a common name.
Luckily the rain stopped and the cricket test match against India at Newlands Cricket Ground could eventually get underway.
