Happiness as Anarchy #72: Curious plants

It’s fun fishing through my photos for something to post here. I’d forgotten about the magical, curly Xanthorrhoea that I saw driving home from Adelaide a few years ago. Like giant, twisted penises reaching for the sky as the cars whizz by at 100km an hour. It’s probably the wind out there, coming of the Great Australia Bight past the Cooyong that makes them grow in such curious forms.
