Mike's Blog - Day 250

It’s a while since we have had anything from the greenhouse.

So, as it's Day 250 today, a treat. Flowering at the moment is “the Bird of Paradise”, Strelitzia reginae.

These grow in South Africa where they are pollinated by sunbirds, the old world equivalent of the humming birds of the Americas.
