Spiky Red Flower

A New Hope – Because

Not all spiky balls are the

I spotted this unusual flower at Kirstenbosch Botanical gardens, Cape Town, South Africa.

After a year spent mostly at home, I ventured out one morning to wander round this most beautiful of places.

It did not disappoint.

      SA is heading into its 3rd wave, but as long as we wear our masks and keep our distance, hopefully we’ll be OK. πŸ™‚

      Aw Thank you so much GH! It’s lovely to have been missed – and I have missed you too, and all your fun posts! πŸ˜€
      Still no doggo – but things aren’t easy here in SA at the moment.
      Still, so far so good!
      And I hope you are keeping well too? πŸ™‚

    Your post is such a welcome sight!!! I’ve been so worried about you, but I didn’t know how to touch base with you. Beautiful plant and great Haiku.

    Please be well my friend. I have sorely missed you.

      Aw Thank you so much Ginger. I have missed you too. πŸ˜€
      I really didn’t intend to be away and was surprised how long it had been!
      It just got too difficult with the power cuts – which still come and go out of the blue. – Like now again!
      But all’s well over here and I hope you are keeping well too.
