Friday's Flowers

According to this Gardening Australia fact sheet, the Pineapple Lily Eucomis, hails from East Africa, a region with summer rains.

This one, growing in my neighbour's garden, is seemingly at it's peak right now.  The photo was taken only this morning, and by the time I was leaving after a coffee/chat session, I needed to borrow an umbrella to walk back home.  Lucky I got the pics first!




Growing alongside, is this equally spectacular frangipanni.

Great pictures of these wonderful flowers, Carole. The pineapple lily grows happily in our garden, but the frangipani we have been unable to coax into flower (yet!).
Thank you for participating in Floral Friday Fotos!

Beautiful flowers Carole. I can see they are appropriately named as a Pineapple lily! The beautiful frangipanni make me feel home sick.

Oh, so pretty! I don't think I've ever seen the first one. It's very unusual looking, but so interesting and delicate!
