R.I.P. Mum

Mum died last week.
As a tribute, our Strelitzia decided to flower for the first time.
We bought 5 seeds when we were in Madeira - in the market at Funchal.
The stallholder explained in sign language that they flower after 9 years.
Two seeds germinated. One plant lasted about 5 years - and this is the other!
The seeds were sown in 2002 - there you go...

R.I.P. Mum
