    Absolutely hilarious. Looks like a bad piece of yeacch modern art. Oscar Wilde always turns out to be right at least in that life or nature rather does imitate art.
    The contrast of textures is fabulous and the two contrasting snake orgies of the two plant glomeruli spiffy.

    Thanks to Brent and Eric for their contributions to our wider understanding of the fantastic world of plants. There appear to be two clumps of Lewisia columbiana with slightly different colouration in the photo. Brent: did you collect two specimens?

    It is truely amazing that a plant that small grows out of rocks. I so much enjoyed reading about it. It seem understantable that it is succlent with a tape root.
    This is a very nice Photograph.
    Thank you,

    Knox, I did collect two specimens. You have a discerning eye to notice that, as they are markedly different in coloration. I also understand Alexander’s comment about “yeachh modern art”. However, they become quite another entity when their June flowers arrive – wonderful!
