I blinked and it’s the end of February
It feels like I just recently posted The Changing Seasons (TCS) for January and yet, my calendar tells me that it will be March next week. My TCS post will be up on Sunday, 27 January (7am Singapore time); I hope you will all join Brian and I for a review & reflection of February 2022 (follow this link to find out more about TCS).
A year or so ago, we chanced upon an oddity amongst the greenery in the Learning Forest. Stopping dead mid-run, we gawked at the Tacca chantrieri André, also known as Devil Flower, Cat’s Whiskers, and my favourite descriptive, Bat Flower. We were very taken by this black bloom and relished the challenge of spotting it amongst the low lying shrubbery whenever we ran this stretch of pavement.
Running habits change and we forgot all about this strange beauty for a while until a random conversation last week sent us on a hunt.
Not as easy to spot as a white, red or yellow bloom, but we did manage to catch a few, declining in its cycle.
