Get your socials ready to see an increase in bright floral pics gracing your scrolling feeds and grab your chance to snap some Pinterest-worthy pics of your own. But, if you missed it this year, fret not - there's always time to get ahead of the game for next year.

All you need is your girl squad and a good quality phone camera and you’re on your way to creating some festive seasonal content for your grid. HUAWEI’s latest Nova smartphone series wants to help you in unlocking your best and most aesthetic selves for your socials. The HUAWEI Nova Y60 is a budget-friendly powerhouse here to help you snap professional-level shots with their sleek and pocket-sized design.

Just because the HUAWEI Nova Y60 is pocket-friendly on the cost doesn’t mean this device skimps on versatility and capability. The smartphone comes hosting an impressive 13MP triple AI back camera set-up and a vibrant 8MP selfie camera – allowing you to get quality shots and footage without breaking the bank. The triple-lens pack features the high-res 13MP main lens with AI assistance, a 5MP 120° ultra-wide-angle lens, as well as a 2MP depth camera lens. This versatile assortment of lenses allows you to capture vibrant images of the breath-taking floral landscapes of SA as well as dreamy close-up shots that play around with the focus between you and the flowers. Beyond this, capture post-worthy selfies with ease as the selfie camera on deck is kitted out with AI features that allow you to get a smooth, bright, and glowy complexion in any lighting situation. The HUAWEI Nova Y60 also comes equipped with a 5000mAh battery that promises to last the full flower hunting journey with you. It includes AI power-saving abilities that support you for long-time use and promises up to 3 days of use on a full charge – allowing you peace of mind when out and about snapping Insta-ready shots. All of this is paired with a generous 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage space that’s expandable by inserting a microSD card, a crisp 6.6” HUAWEI FullView Display, and a 3D-rounded body – letting you review and store your pics and vids with ease.

This incredible device is up for grabs and on a hot deal on the HUAWEI Online Store. You can snag the HUAWEI Nova Y60 now for just R3099 and receive a free Bluetooth headset valued at R699 on the HUAWEI Store (Online) (T&C's apply).

Now that you’ve got the perfect pocket-sized partner for your floral adventure locked and loaded - here are four of the best places to find vibrant flowers across Mzansi to bookmark for your 2022 September itinerary:

Postberg (West Coast National Park)

In late August and through September, the Postberg section of this national park becomes freckled in an array of orange, yellow, purple, white, and pink flowers. Find more information on park entry rates here.

Philadelphia, Western Cape

Situated a quick 35 – 40 minutes outside of the Cape Town CBD area, this area becomes bathed in yellow with the canola farms that fill the landscape. Making it a perfect spot to tuck between the tall stalks for some wondrous shots.

Darling, Western Cape

Similarly, this little town that forms part of the Cape Floral Region, becomes a landscape in colour over the spring season. While the Darling Wildflower Show won’t be happening this year, visitors can still book a guided flower tour of the region.

Namaqualand, Northern Cape

This flower route finds itself weaving along a stretch of road that connects towns, cities, national parks, and reserves in this vibrant Saffa region. For most of the year, the region is an arid desert area, but the landscape comes to life in spring with the birth of fresh and colourful wildflowers.

What are you waiting for? Ring in spring with a shiny new smartphone treat and some colourful flowers to warm up your social feed.
