I really thought it was a mop head (having just had a morning cleaning my kitchen floor). Very well captured Barbara and those light greens show up well against that dark background.

Mophead does seem rather appropriate. And it does seem to be thriving. Wall to wall blue sky down here, and for the rest of the day apparently .... trip to the Thames methinksGrin

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

Extraordinary plant: thought you'd taken a snap of your kitchen mop from the thumbnail.
At first thought it was a mop, but then I saw it was a plant,, good detail Barbara, nice idea.
