Now for some plants!

When we took the Esperero Trail on one of the Ned-less Nature Walks, we encountered this new (for me) plant. Thanks to Jim for the i.d.! Linear-leaved Cambess (Oligomeris linifolia). Note the square opening on the fruits.

Range Ratany (Krameria erecta) is often overlooked. Fruit (on the left) is a spiky little ball.

Rough Menodora (Menodora scabra) is in the Olive Family (Oleaceae). Note the little balls on the lower left. Those are the fruits.
