Thursday, 12 March '09: Garden oddment
Fortunately this is not a python straddling the plants in my garden. It is the stem of the delicious monster (deliciosa monstera) which grows so prolifically after summer downpours. The giant leaves plucked from the stem create a pattern reminiscent of some giant snake. Above is a single red hisbiscus ready to be plucked worn behind the ear.
