Wet Bulbinella

By Hermanus
Bulbinella is a herb that is indigenous to South Africa. The drought-resistant South African bulbinella herb has many medicinal uses. Bulbinella is excellent for helping to:
•Slow down bleeding
•Dry up acne
•Soothe cold sores, chapped lips and cracked heels
•Soothe sunburn and treat mosquito and insect bites
•Get relief from eczema symptoms
They come in various colours but this is my favourite one Smile
Thank you to all who took the time to vote or comment on my birds yesterday - much appreciated.
Have a super week !

Another super image excellent colours.
The capture and colours are magic with a great background. I just love the tonal range in this one. The subject is soft and subtle making it for me one of your very best. Well done Herman.

HI Herman

Another lovely capture here, looking at the list of benefits from Bulbinella including Soothe sunburn and treat mosquito and insect bites; not that I get much of a problem with Sunburn, but I am allergic to just about everything that bites, could you send me a CWT [hundred Weight]; still suffering from the one that managed to get through my defences on my last holiday.

Sorry I haven't been around much over the last week or so, very busy work wise, so will pop in from time to time, when work gets too much for me and I need some relief.

Apparently the South have been battered by storms over night, we seem to have got away lightly, winds are only about 60mph here and I have not heard much in the way of flooding or trees falling up here. However, sometimes we get the flooding a few days later as the water from the land finally hits the rivers................... Don't worry, I have a snorkel Tongue
