This is one of many pages describing plants and animal life that we have in our garden. In many cases, we don't know what they are. Comments welcome.

By default the photos on this page are relatively small (“thumbnails“). Click on them to get progressively larger photos.


Strictly speaking, this flower doesn't come from our garden: it comes from the other side of the road, probably on the land belonging to our neighbours Helen and Robert. I found it blooming there in late winter 2008 and was allowed to take a couple of corms. This used to be “Mystery 12”; thanks to Leonne Carman I now know that it's an Chasmanthe_floribunda (also known as African flag or African cornflag).
