Carol [ Caziwinkles] reminded me yesterday that I also have a Croton photo or twenty, so I thought I would make her homesick for another holiday Smile This was taken on our friends' farm near Mtunzini, KwaZuluNatal in July. I have tried a few times to grow them here but they just die on me in the first winter after I planted them Smile
Thanx for everybody who voted and commented on the Strelizia flower yesterday !!
Have a great week !!

Such wonderful colours, Herman, a great frame-filler. I remember growing them when I lived in Venezuela for a year, they did so well, and ended up being almost 4' tall and almost as wide Smile Carol

I've only ever seen these as house plants and I can't even grow them in a pot so they must be difficult to grow naturally if you have problems with them Herman, makes me feel much better Tongue

These colours lend themselves well to photography.

The sun is out, but it is very breezy this morning, these are what I define the winds of change, there is a difference between these winds and normal winds, it's mainly in the sound and the direction, very eerie. We are promised a little more warmth these week, but who knows after that, now that September has arrived; however, if we are lucky, we could get an Indian Summer.

However, in 17 days I will be driving to Birmingham Airport in order to board a flight to Lanzarotti, I hope, must find my passport.
