Summer is coming, temperature reached 34 degrees Celcius last week.
Flowers are blooming in our garden, I took some photos and thought I'd share. I live in Athens, Greece.

Thanks a lot, Max!

The only problem is that there are many mosquitoes from May to late October. Way too many. This can be a problem when you just want to relax and drink your coffee...

HoosierShaver, that is a Bird of Paradise and gets its name from the bird the plant suggests. It is fairly common here in San Diego.

It's a beautiful garden Nick! Does it take lots of time to maintain it?

nikos.a,

Such a spectacular garden should be enjoyed.

Here are some items which might enable you to derive the pleasure you deserve from it.

Thank you very much! It's called Strelitzia reginae, but it's also known as the bird of paradise as Freddy already said. It's probably the most beautiful flower I've ever seen. It loves sun. I have planted a few in a spot with no sunlight and no flowers are blooming.
