SA plants I loved this time

The nicest thing about a trip to SA (in Mar/April this year to KZN and Mpumalanga) is being newly enchanted by plants that I previously took for granted. Here’s a selection of recent favourites: palm seeds, more palm seeds, and a wonderful elephant tusk plant in the shadow of night, a succulent that offers its new plants on the tip of the leaf like a butterfly alighting; the stunning chevron of a traveller’s palm. Finally, by way of contrast, the untidy nest of the communication spider on a bush walk.
