What is the tree with

bright  pink flowers on

 Table Mountain?

One of the best sights on Table Mountain in July and August is the Keurtjie or Water Blossom Pea in flower. This small tree or well branched shrub develops the most beautiful pink or mauve pea flowers at this time. They also fill the area with a lovely fragrence.
It is abundant in Kirstenbosch and on the Eastern slopes of Table Mountain. Particularly in the river gorges.

This picture was taken close to the Overseers cottage above Constantia Nek.
