Colourful Friday ~ Flowers

Good Friday morning and welcome to another Colourful Friday with Robyn and the gang.
F L O W E R S ~~~ I thought I would go with some more unusual flowers around my home. Hope you enjoy them.

My daughter loves growing succulents and is very pleased when one comes into flower.

I love the name of this one ... 'Bird of Paradise' or 'Strelitzia'. I have a large clump in my garden and it never stops flowering.

How could I not share one of my roses ... Double Delight ... my mum's favourite.

I look forward to visiting all the colour flowers blooming today.

I do like your choices for today. I am always stunned by how beautiful the flowers are on succulents. They are so often large and vibrant.
I have never grown a bird of paradise but greatly admire them.
And of course the rose is beautiful!
