Catching sight of these in a display in a car park took me right back to childhood and our garden where we had a bed of Red Hot Pokers. Not the same thing, of course, as these seem to be some sort of desert plant, an aloe perhaps or agave but I like their boldness and prickliness. I guess if you planted these along your boundary they'd discourage burglars!
You'd think, given the climate, that the South of France would be a healthy area to be..not so. There are so many varieties of plants here that allergies abound. The pine is especially bad. That's a long way of saying that I'm having to put this blog on hold for the moment. Because of my allergies merely being outside is tough on my chest and I've run out of photos. I'll be back in a week or so once the treatment's kicked in but I will, of course, be round to see you all. In fact, not posting will give me more time to visit.
Long live Rebellion!
