Dear All,

I'm a bit late with this, but I finally found the time to scan a few of the 
slides of our South African trip of the patch of Veltheimia capensis we saw 
in fruit. As I said when I wrote about our trip my husband got to be quite 
good about spotting plants even when he was driving on a side of the road 
he wasn't used to. We thought from a distance that these were flowers since 
many of them looked red, but when we got out of the car we found they were 
seed pods. It was an incredible site. None of the seed was ripe yet, but 
very attractive. I hoped to get these on the wiki when this was still a 
topic of the week, but didn't manage it until yesterday.…
