WCNP: Flowers

Unread postby Caracal » Sat Aug 22, 2009 1:12 pm

I thought it would be interesting to build up a library of photographs of flowers seen in WCNP. Please help me by adding your photos of the different flowers that you have seen inside WCNP. Please try to add the name of the flower and where and when you saw it .
I am sure there are some "Flower Fundis " out there that can help us with the ID.

Nice thread Caracal. It'll certainly have us diving for our camera's. Educational too. Thanks a lot.
I think the flowers are going to be a treat this year. Best still to come I believe.
Guess where I'll be heading in these coming days.
KTP- 23/4/15 to 26/4/15 - Mata Mata
27/4/14 to 30/4/15 - Nossob
1/5/15 to 4/5/15 - Gharagab
[color=#008000]

Birthdays are good for you - the more you have, the longer you live!

Thanks Tony..I believe the best are still to come and yes I can well imagine where you are heading these coming days. :mrgreen:

Hey ..no reason why I can't either :dance:

I am going to go through my archives to see what other flower photos I have. I am looking forward to seeing how many different flower pics we can achieve on this thread.

All these beautiful flowers are in bloom at the same time, in more or less the same place?
