@bobbyj my daughter thought it was a caterpillar at first.
@murnane they are my favourites :)
@myautofocuslife yes - they do unfurl.
@ozziehoffy thanks - I love this one particularly because it is a prostrate form that drapes over my retaining wall.

Like others said up there, in thumbnail was not sure this was a plant or creature. I like how the ones in front are bowed down...it's like the wave, and the back started standing up first...
