That's what it looks like (I guess) when it's not blowing 60+ km/hr across the beach, at which point it becomes a surreal stinging wasteland.
To avoid complete and total exfoliation, we walked back to Olifantsbos via the inland trail. We saw lots of droppings as big as moose pellets - but no eland or bontebok from which they must have originated. We picked up some ostrich feathers caught in a prickly bush. There were lots of cute little succulents.
We stopped on the way back at the Good Hope Nursery outside Scarborough which specializes in indigenous plants and picked out four more succulents to complete my box. I don't know what they all are yet! But yesterday I got it all planted up: This is an unknown. The guy at the nursery told me it was Crassula but he didn't know what kind. I looked at a billion on line today and although there are thousands of kinds of Crassula, I didn't see any with little pea leaves like this. More research is necessary. Here's the coolest/ weirdest one: Stapelia grandiflora. It's a dwarf species from the same genus as that giant carrion flower that is polinated by flies and smells like dead stuff and/or trash. Some of the specimens at the nursery had blooms so I smelled it and yah, it smells dead. But the scent is not too strong. So I bought one with two buds on it. The flowers are really weird looking, like a drunk starfish leaning up against the little trunks. So weird and cool.
The box is in my office window now, gets low sun until about 11 every day so I think that will satisfy all these guys. I need to find somebody who can tell me what each really is! Tempting to follow it up with a cactus box on my other window sill... but maybe I should just be patient since I already have 101 tomato plants to take care of.
