:clap: GREAT photos FD!! 8)

Ok let me try and give this a bash...
Unfortunately i'm struggling with the 1000's of Cape plants so i can not help with all of them - for now... Will try and search for the 'missing' ones :?
Please just remember it is almost impossible to ID vygies from photographs :wall:

#11 & 12 - Colchicum… (previously Androcymbium) but i'm not sure which one :? Species reported from Tanqua include C. albomarginatum, C. circinatum, C. coloratum, C. hantamense;

Hope this helps... :wink:
