Bird of paradise

.

A bird of paradise.


The plant itself is really big, here in the inner yard of Soroka Hospital in Beer Sheva.
The pictures are from over a month ago; I suppose these Strelitzia flowers are no more.   Spring is way too short in the desert.

Given its dimensions against its background in that second shot, the size is considerable.

Wow! It's just like Hawaii, but that's a huge, huge Bird of Paradise!

There are some that I am looking at out my window right now. Seems like they bloom all year round here. They are a bonus if you like bold and exotic flower arrangements, though it's not something I've ever tried to create. I've been thinking of thinning them out quite a bit or even removing them.
