    That is lovely. It almost looks like an origami flower.

    Gorgeous!!!!, I think these are stunning flowers and they do so look like vibrantly coloured little birds, Anne will like this if she sees it, she is rather fond of these flowers I think.Thank you for sharing it with us.

    Yep, Anne is very fond of them, and I'm thrilled that we now have some here too.

    Bruce, that's gorgeous. Thank you so much for sharing it with us. The first hummingbird I ever shot (with the camera of course) was drinking from a Bird of Paradise, so every time I see one of these beautiful plants, I just smile at a very happy memory!!

    Bruce, I think your bird of paradise is a phoenix. Look at all that fire!
