There is a weed in a vase in my front room.

It was collected from Mantung, (near Loxton, South Australia) in July 2010.

My friend Christine said it was Roly Poly Bush.

Roly Poly Bush, Prickly Saltwort, Salsola kali, the plant according to Wikipedia is most commonly known as Tumbleweed.

I collected the dried bush for its rounded, plantine shape. I found its branched, prickly stems attractive and placed it in a vase.

For the Wild Weeds project, I photographed the weed in a vase under the dappled light of vines growing at the side of my house.
