Here the aloes get there flowers in the winter and this young plant was starting to shoot out its new stem.
Nestled against a crevase, the aloe and this unknown succulent compete for the sunny spot.
What a lovely rock!! I wondered what its history was in order to get uch nice stripes in it.
Somewhere along the way a Guinea Fowl had lost its feather. It was tucked away in the grass and looked so lonely but made a pretty picture surrounded by the greenery.
What an amazing find!! The only problem is that I do not know what it it!! It is very small, about 4mm in length and was hurrying along this rock for all it was worth. I could see the nose of some kind of caterpillar sticking out at the bottom and wondered if it was some kind of bagworm as I know they disguise themselves like this?
We have many species of Euphorbia here and this one is very common with it's stems growning up to about 20 feet in height. They exude a white sap which is poison and has been used to kill fish.
