@awomanonabike if anything good can come of this then you’d hope it was for people to be better. I truly think many will but sadly there are still a lot of single-minded ones about 😔

We can but hope Kerry. I could say something about Darwin and the single-minded ones but I’d better not 😉😂

@cyndi it does look quite different to yours. The foliage isn’t as thick and there aren’t spikes on this one. Maybe it’s a slightly different type. The flowers do look the same though 😜

Definitely B nutans (not the cross). Also known as Queen’s tears and #friendshipplant which seems very appropriate 😉😂
