Wow, talk about adaptive chamouflage at the ends of those leaves!

Mimicking sand, I would imagine, nature is so grand!


Oh, and the flower is cool, too. smiley

I've never seen one in full flower, like, smothered with flowers. Maybe the plants think they're in South Africa still, just upside down, but the flowering season has just begun.
