Named after the great and wonderful Edmund I wonder? This is Edmondia sesamoides with just the white bracts left.
We managed to get up to the Fat Lady's Shelter for tea, but the Foodlady forgot to take a photo of us as I think her mind is still in the Eastern Cape where they went without us.
Then we headed down and doubled back again, past some lovely cool rocky passageways and overhangs, to where we had slogged up an hour or so earlier. I just gave up and the Alpha Male had to carry me down. It was only half past nine and already about 40 degrees.
Lets hope next Sunday is better. I envy Sue who is heading off to cold and windy England.
Cape fellwort Saltera sarcostemma. What the Foodlady calls the scoobeedoo plant. Also called the vlieebos in Afrikaans which means "fly bush" but I think it actually means FLEA bush which is appropriate to our sorry, flea-ridden state at the moment.
Argiope australis a lovely orb web spider at the bottom of the mountain. Waiting to get Dougal on his mad sorties into the bush!
