July 2021 - long and spindly

Thought I would choose something challenging to get a representative picture of: plants that are long and spindly - for example Echinocereus poselgeri, Pelargonium tetragonum etc...

Hi Darren
This is long and spindely, definitely awkward to photograph. The flower has gone over :roll:
Maybe I'll catch the next one :smile:

Cool! Thank you - mid month and I was worrying there might be no contributions!

If this counts,
Tylecodon grandiflora
Very awkward plant, but beautiful flower.
