Spring has sprung!

While we were up at my parents' house this weekend, I took some pictures of what is growing in their garden. I can see why my mum likes spring so much.

ooh! what's the last flower Snerg? I know most of the others, but that one looks like a cross between an orchid, a begonia, and something from another planet...

Unfortunately I can't really identify any of them. I was trying to ring my parents to find out but alas they didn't answer the phone... but I will continue the research!

cool, because it's tres exotic, I think The Delightful Nanna would like one.

MrSnerg said...

You are in luck! It is the crucifix orchid. So you were pretty close with the orchid guess! Here's a nice link:

ooh, pretty! one of my uncles is a bit of an orchid nut, so I'll ask him to keep an eye out for it.
