Or Billbergia Nutans, a bromeliad (thanks to Jez and Graham).
I posted this a week or so ago, but now the tips are opening to show their striped petals and a different queen has reached her end.
For more flowers, see Cee’s Flower of the Day (FOTD).
How very appropriate. Beautiful too!
Thanks, Jude. Yes, for those of us in the colonies, she was a significant part of our lives, more so as children. I did feel moved.
I think a few tears have been shed for the loss of Queen Elizabeth. She was one of a kind. Lovely photos of the opening flowers.
