Disas on the mountain

We had a good day. Our legs hurt.

Our hearts are full.

Disa uniflora en masse on Table Mountain. Gorgeous orchid. I have only ever seen them up here on the mountain, in or very near pure, running mountain water.

We have that water in the fridge, as I write. I love it. It is pale tea coloured from all the fynbos roots through which it runs, and is very soft. I've known disas to be culivated and heard that distilled water is used. Does anyone know?

We have seen the redness.

And I am very worried about this: dozens of buds in the Aqueduct were bent and broken by...the agapanthus borer? That's my guess. Same modus operandi. And I hope I am wrong.
