Look who’s back!
Mr Spaghetti Legs’ plant, Erica Quadrangularis, is in full bloom once again.
It has survived a whole year, of sun and drought, and of barely hanging on with its tiny little stem and measly root structure.
Now, as Spring approaches once more in the Western Cape, it is in full magnificent bloom. A myriad of tiny white bell-shaped blossoms adorn the dry stick-like stems.
For size comparison: in the above photo, those dried up brown leaves under the bush are from my oak tree. It really is a tiny plant!
And because I know that secretly you all want to see some photos of the old boy, here is Mr Spaghetti Legs.
