I was at the very end of my 60x zoom. Even holding my breath couldn't get a sharp photo. Only later I thought that next time,leave the car window half up and use that to keep the camera steady. Next time!

Sounds a plan! I do love this, it’s gorgeous, Stan! Beautiful shaped flowers, colour too.

This is a hard find. Only a handful I know of. Maybe more soon as the area goes longer without a deep freeze. 1992 was the last "big one".

These are really easy from seed - I have 3 that I started in the spring, but a different species from Africa. Can't really do much around them since they are full of stickers, even on the underside of the leaves.
