Along the sand crawls a succulent Clyde calls an
"ice plant" also known as fig-marigold or mesem-
bryanthemum which endures heat, drought and salt,
and which thrives in alkaline soil and makes a valuable 11p

remarkably tolerant of adverse conditions, and which J
makes a fine border or ground cover. Neither of these
plants grows much higher than eight inches and both
spread rapidly. (
