This is one of many pages describing plants and animal life
that we have in our garden. In many cases, we don't know what they are. Comments welcome.
By default the photos on this page are relatively small (“thumbnails“). Click

Strictly speaking, this flower doesn't come from our garden: it comes from the other side of
the road, probably on the land belonging to our neighbours Helen and Robert. I found it
blooming there in late winter 2008 and was allowed to take
a couple of corms. This used to be “Mystery 12”; thanks to Leonne Carman I now
know that it's
(also known as African flag or African cornflag).
