Double-Header !! (Strelitzia reginae (Bird of paradise))

This is the second bloom on my Bird Of Paradise, which did turn out to be a double-header !! So actually that makes it 2nd and 3rd bloom. It's still going strong and bud #4 is getting ready to open soon.

Thank you everyone !
Flcrazy, this is the first winter in a LONG time that I havn't had the winter blahs ! I'm sure this beauty had a lot to do with it. I'm glad it helped brighten your day.

So guess what else? The 4th bud just split into 2 buds so that means another double-header !! I tell you this plant is sure making up for those 8 lost years ! It won't begin to bloom for a while yet but I'll sure let y'all see !
