I Survived!

Erica 1

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.

    How lovely that the little plant got through and how wonderful to see Mr SL, he was such a handsome dog, with his markings, really enjoyed seeing his photos 🙂

    Thanks for the memories! I love Mr. SL’s face! His beauty mark is adorable and almost matches mine. I miss posts with him.
    Glad your little plant made it! 😁 I keep my fingers crossed on some plants here, also. Ya never know if there’s going to be a bad winter and they aren’t coming back.
