Thank you Amblealice, Terratoonie, Bloomer, Sandra and Yorkshire....:))

Sandra, thanks for passing on the information to Blloomer. This print looks nicer in it's original size which is much bigger............ My next print, is of my favourite canna, which is the Cleopatra. Sadly, I lost it last year, but just as well I took a couple of pictures. I have some more on order, can't wait !!! :-)

Thank you Tasteyq. This picture was taken in my garden in the middle of the day. I remove the leafs, the background and anything else I do not want to include in my prints.
I will post the original picture, for you to see......... :-)

Thank you Lori,....How are you doing these days? These plants can grow that high, given the right conditions :))

It seemed quite happy, Louis. I was a little leary given how poisonous the seeds are... but it grew happily and bloomed but our cold climate killed the plant before the seeds had time to ripen.

That happened to my one as well Lori, but that's gardening for you :).......

it looks very nice, what is it called

29 Jan, 2010

 

Thank you Xavia. It's called Ricinus Communis, and the common name is "The Castor Oil Plant". It should grow very well where you are in Pretoria :-)
