Pustules are really not nice so I wish the describer had given a different name to Massonia pustulata. M goosebumpiflora maybe? ;D

Giles,

Great pics.  That Ornithogalum is amazing.  It almost looks like one of the Polyxena/Massonias with the flowerhead down in the middle like that with just a couple of leaves.  Most unusual.  And the leaves on the M. pustulata are divine!!  8)
Cheers.

 Since I travel so rarely nowadays, Paul, it is one of my favourite sections!  8) I highly commend it . :)

Isn't it nice how we can share others trips and even get some tips. Although I go at least once a year no one can hope to see such a variety of plants locations and time of visit as we see here 8)

Meanwhile in the cold damp and miserable depths of November this fern is looking at its best. Polypodium Richard Kayse a plant found only once in the 1600 's and still to be found in a location in Wales.
