Flax is also known as common flax or linseed. Grown mainly for its oil and nutritional value the fibres from the plant are also used for making linen. Who would have believed that such a delicate looking flower could have so many uses?
My biggest fear is spiders, I think they call this fear Arachnophobia, when I encounter spiders it is almost as though I am having a panic attack. We met this huge Baboon Spider in the West Coast National Park. Urrrgh!
Love the spring flowers that are carpeting the West Coast National Park right now. Spectacular colours and you need to get down to ground level to see the real gems, tiny orchid like blossoms and many more. Got to go back before the end of September, before the Postberg part of the park closes again. Want to get some more pics of the baby zebra and the baby bontebok.
