Up your nose?

The bird of paradise plant is flowering and has about 6 spikes ready to bloom. There are about 4 opening and all 6 should be in bloom by the new year.

Can you spot the Christmas trees?
This plant is taking over. We rescued it from B&Q when they were closing down their plant section a few years ago. It had been sadly neglected but we gave it some tender loving care - cleaning and repotting.

  3. What a beautiful plant. I always thought these needed all manner of special bits and pieces, and surrounds, and oh everything.
    Well done.
    Yes I can see the trees!
