Being native to the Transvaal I'm guessing that these won't do very well if I plant them out in this cold wet January ... so I'll enjoy them indoors instead. It's like having sunflowers in the house ... and since they're related to the sunflower family ... I suppose that's not exactly a surprise.
He'll move quickly if I pick up one of the bags that contains "walking stuff" ... things like plastic bags and hand wipes!
This particular bag (a Christmas gift) is a carpet! A wonderful thick Turkish carpet.
"Caretta" is the loggerhead sea turtle found not only in the Mediterranean Sea but also throughout the major oceans. It has the widest distribution of any turtle. There are fewer along the European coasts and the largest concentration is in Florida and the southern part of the US.
Cyprus, Turkey and especially Greece have most of the Mediterranean loggerheads, and planes are not permitted at night around the nesting sites at Zakynthos (Greece).
This bag is from southern Turkey ... Köyceğiz ... that's the name woven into the fabric.
