Well, I've been on a bit of a gardening roll with the blog on these past few posts, so I thought I would relate another one of our interesting plant: cycads. As a european, that's always a pretty funky plant to see. I had seen one of our cycads sprouting leaves once last year.
This year the cycads seem to have liked their treatment and they have all sprouted a lovely crown of leaves and one has given us a flower! Well it's not as pretty as one might imagine. It's looking like the plant is laying an egg.... upwards... but the final "flower" is still quite interesting.
