On the hills overlooking the Detwah lagoon on the west coast of Socotra I found many interesting flowers, and luckily some not destroyed by goats.

In a few days this location would have been bone dry, and I found many signs of the coming dry season as many small plants were drooping from lack of water. I was very grateful to see such a healthy and juicy specimen as this one.
