Weekly Photo Challenge: Face
So this week’s photo challenge is on the word face. I happened to go to a May Fair on Saturday, the sun was shining, I wasn’t necessarily looking for anything particular, just browsing which is sometimes the best way? I happened to stumble upon a stall I had never seen before (as been to this fair a few times), which not only sold plants, but unusual ones displayed in interesting ways.
My eyes were immediately drawn to what I call my little person.
I fell in love with it though I had no idea what it was, but had to have it. Other people were vying it, so I quickly made an offer and little person became mine, yay!
It now takes pride of place in my bathroom, I just hope I don’t kill it, which erm happens quite a lot with me and plants it seems.
It turns out that this rather adorable creature, yes I know it is a plant, but well, I have humanized it in some way, well it is actually called a Fockea Edulis, rather unusual name don’t you think?
It was originally eaten by the native population of Southern Africa, a long and elaborated cooking procedure is however required to rid the plant of the alkaloids which are present. I won’t be eating it.
So what do you think? Do you see a little creature, or an alien being, a plant, or something else? Maybe you see nothing?
Hoping you have a beautiful week ahead, Justine xx
