Birds of Paradise

The strelitzia flowers in Mum’s garden are old now and will soon be nothing more than cracked and withered cellulose as the summer takes its toll.

In the spring they were a beautiful blaze of orange, yellow, blue and purple crowning lush green foliage. Still though in their decay they have become even more interesting as texture replaces colour and each flower takes on its own beautiful uniqueness.
