It's a low maintenance/low water plant -- I bought it in bloom last fall (I think -- I lose track of the "seasons' down here) and it rebloomed this summer!

Well it is really beautiful. I just have 2 ivy type plants and an anthurium that bloomed only once. I am not too good with plants, they usually die on me.

I hear ya, Karen. The only kind of plants I can keep alive are philodendron (sp?) or pothos, and I can't have those at home because they are poisonous to cats. So I have them at work.

swandiver, beautiful desert rose. And iloveedge, your sunsets are gorgeous!

The first summer I moved to Florida, I bought a lot of pots and planted flowering plants in all of them .... then they dropped leaves, dropped flowers, died, etc. Turned out to be a bigger PITA than I thought! This desert rose may be the way to go. I also have 2 tomato plants I bought at Wal-Mart that had green tomatoes on them already, so we're enjoying the "fruits of my labor," so to speak!

Oakland City Hall -- along the West Orange Trail (22 miles of paved walking/biking path in Florida). Beautiful and quaint!

Wow - such fantastic photos!

Here's my favourite that I took in Hawaii in December:



I'm really looking forward to going to South Africa this summer, and for all the cool photo opportunities I'll have there.

That is a gorgeous flower, Thora, what is it? Looks like some kind of lily?
I can't wait to hear all about your So Africa adventures!

Thanks!

Carek - I have no clue - I know nothing about flowers. I just saw it in a park, and thought it would make a good picture.

Is it a Bird of Paradise? It's beautiful, no matter what.

Ava: gorgeous! I especially like the Lily of the Valley photo.

No it's not a bird of paradise. There are several white Hawaiian flowers and there are several kinds of lilies that look similar but in different colors. I love Hawaiian flowers, they are so beautiful.

Yeah, not birds of paradise ... I thought I knew what these were, but don't. The flowers almost look like honeysuckle-type flowers, but they look like they're on a stem, not a vine. Could be some sort or orchid? White ginger?

Not white ginger...I still think it is some kind of lily. I should try to find out. This has got me so intrigued now.
