Like the black background the most.

I took this for a group I belong to on Flickr for photos of flowers with a jet black background.

This is a lovely flower, Wylie!

It was out in force today and out shone everything else in my garden.

With that bright orange it's no wonder!

But then as your climate is warmer than ours I expect it likes your garden a lot!

Do you grow the typical spring flowers like Daffodils, Crocuses, Hyacinths, etc, we do in the UK on your island? Perhaps it's too warm for them to flourish over there.

You are right, it is too warm, although the Jonquils are suited for warmer gardens. I have white and yellow Jonquils. But the Scillas are starting to bloom and I grow South African bulbs that bloom in the spring. Lapeirousia divaricate is the next to open - the petals are starting to push out from the bud.

Had a look at them on The Pacific Bulb website & they look quite interesting!
