African tulips & natural inspiration

Our gardens are goldmines and I love nothing more than seeing the joy & inspiration other people get from their gardens. Yesterday I learn't about the African Tulip, from FreshlyFound. A tree I'd never heard of before although I have heard of a Flame tree, which is one of it's other names. They are truly magnificent.

See why FreshlyGround is one of my favourite haunts here.

Found all around the world, Interestingly enough, it has been declared an invasive weed in other countries, like Australia.
