06/09/19 - Another part of the island, more central, found this quite eerie looking terrain on a hot cliff side, with skeletons of Opopordum bracteatum (I think 🤔) which is a type of Cottonthistle and a biennial. Dozens of these had already finished flowering and gone to seed, but plenty of fresh living rosettes around too in their first year of growth too. Very silvery prickly foliage - which is a classic sign of coastal and sun loving plants 👍🏼
