Such an exotic looking flower to my eyes and what a delight to see them growing naturally: here they cost about 5.00 for one stem.

The bright colors would take the chill off. A beautiful specimen, it must be wonderful to see so many when they are in full bloom.
(just out of curiosity, what is the temperature in your very cold conditions?)

I love these 'Bird of Paradise' they are the essence of sunshine and such beautiful colours.

It's cool this evening here Herman and was cool this morning when I got up, had to put on my dressing gown; makes me feel sad for the fading summer............... Does Ryan Air fly to South Africa Blush [A cheap and tacky airline, that charge you extra if you want a seat, or use the toilet, and you simply can't afford their extra charges for luggage, cheaper to buy a whole new wardrobe when you get there].
