  1. Hi. That bush is most likely an English shrub or an Afrikaans struik. Don’t rely too much on your dictionary as all isn’t always what it seems to be. Commendable effort from your side. 😎

    1. Hi Blootvoet, yes, that is definitely true. I should probably exchange bush/bos for shrub/struik. Thank you!
