Some More Flowers



Cactus flower, not unlike a zygo but as you can see, is off that prickly rat tail.

I think this is a type of bromeliad.


Another bromeliad. It doesn't have flowers as such, it's colour is in the leaves.



Red Hippeastrum or October Lily

White hippeastrum

Orange and white hippy.

Great pics, lovely flowers, Robyn. I shot over to the nursery this morning and bought a couple of variegated ivy hanging pots. One of the ivy is with white variegation and the other cream/yellow.

Just think...it's almost a week since the big day last Saturday! This week has flown! I hope you've caught up on your rest and recreation since then. :)

All those things are meant to have "evolved" ... I don't really believe that...

Very nice flowers...I love the October lily and wish I had a garden full right about now!

BTW...I've gone private on my blog, email me if you would like an invite.

Love & Hugs,

Your flowers are so exotic! My favorite is the pink one, then the white one. A hippy flower?? Double cool!

I so love all your flowers, especially the lilies, love their colours! I still have a few flowers hanging on and that's thanks to the warmer than usual temps we're having. Yesterday I was in my short, it went up to 25c...not used to that in October in these parts! lol xox
