Asolutely fabulous!
~there was a girl selling these as cut flowers at the side of the road for 10 Rand~ about a £I ! We bought some and left them still fresh and pretty where we were staying when we came home~my plant at home here had a gorgeous double flower this year~ do you know what causes that?

This year we also had a double head on one of the flowers - I suspect that it may be water related or temperature related. If the firstm, it is because of our drought. If the latter, we have had very unseasonal ranges in temperature this year which could be th emain culprit to stimulate a double head. But then noe of the other flowers did so.
