Dont give up ...... Hang on in there."

Thought this rather grand succulent was sending out a message of some sorts.

Weekend again ... Have a good one!
I can see a blue sky at the moment, but not holding my breath.

So, I'm not the only one who thought it was either a mop or a wig. From the thumbnail, it also looks like a bundle of rope.
Fascinating plant with interesting growth patterns.

I was browsing my EPZ faves on my iPhone whilst uptown having some lunch, and my immediate thought too was a mop head! Then I thought "No, Barbara's bought a green afro wig..." Wrong on both counts! Wink A very fine looking specimen, Barbs, and beautifully captured Smile
