Thanks, Bill. I would have loved to bring some back for you, as you once gave me such a beautiful bouquet: but I only brought the pictures.
more than enough…just glad you were able to make the journey and come home safe and sound…the pictures are just fine…
What an intriguing combination of arid and wet.
It was my great good fortune to be there when it rained for the first time in six months. Usually it is a combination of arid and arid.
Well, ya got me of course! Let’s see – Aloes and Agaves, Euphorbias (I think), mystery plants (!), Roses (that’s easy!), apricots?, Bottlebrush (Callistemon), mystery plant (a lily of some sort?), cactus (who I wonder?), and some sort of poppy. I’m not sure I did very well! Oh well, I’d have liked to see all of them in person.
You are my favorite plant-identifier, my primary resource for the names of things, and as always, you do a fine job of it. The spiral aloe is my favorite–such fun to photograph, and I was so lucky to catch it right after a rain.
What beautiful photos. I recognise the aloe and bottlebrush from Miami, though I’ve never seen the spiral aloe. It fascinates me how the same plants can be found on different sides of the world.
So much beauty: the jewels to be found in a country of so much poverty. You certainly brought back riches: riches of the earth and of the human spirit, riches of experience and memory – to share. Thank you for the bounty, dearest friend.
Seeing the beauty of what grows in Lesotho, through your eyes, is probably the closest I’ll ever get to see Africa. I am happy your camera worked fine. I am happy they have this beauty to look at. Thanks for sharing, Kendall, thanks for bringing those treasures, those stories to our attention.
That camera obeyed your gifted eye and captured such beauty for you to share. Thanks from me.
One plant I believe we call Red Paintbrush. Many look like what we have here in the arid Southwest. What I especially love is the round mud hut, what a fascinating structure, one that surely speaks to my heart.
Beautiful photos, truly wonderful!
These are superb. Thanks so much for the link!
