The drive is roughly 500 km there and back.
Exploring the world with Grandpa - on the shady side of the tree. Note there is only a hint of green. Everything goes without water until the rains start after April.
Because of its sponge like fibrous composition the trunk of Aloe dichotoma has a very light weight. Thomas (aged three years and five months) kindly agreed to demonstrate the weight of a dead Aloe dichotoma trunk. The wind was strong and made it difficult for him to keep his balance, but he was not going to give up. If a guy must pose on a photo for Grandma he will do it with a smile.
Finally the stem was in line with the wind and he could pose.
A last stop to get some of the high quality sandy loam for Grandpa's seedlings.
