Bird of Paradise Flower – Strelitzia

This post was inspired by the consistently excellent work of Don Charisma. Go check out his post. Red And Yellow Flower. This is the South African version of that plant.

This incredible flower is from the plant family “Bird of Paradise”. I am pretty sure that the name comes from its resemblance to the remarkable flying creatures.

I took this photo while staying at a very dodgy guesthouse in Orkney South Africa.

As always.
Love and respect.


Passion Flower

The Passion Fruit Flower – In South Africa we call them Granadillas. I bought this creeper to see if it would run along the wood fence that surrounds my Garden. What a fantastic surprise when it started flowering. Aren’t these incredible?
