Gazania “Bridget” taken in Logan Botanic Garden, Dumfries and Galloway. South Africa in Scotland? Now that’s surely a contrast.

(please click to enlarge – it’s worth it!)

Gazania "Bridget"


Published by


I have lived in the UK for most of my life, but when young I definitely had wanderlust and even ended up living in South Africa for several years which was a wonderful experience. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.

  1. Fantastic flower and yes, the contrast is pleasing. The centre of the flower looks like an afterthought–those white dots–an added something because the artist enjoyed painting this one. Ha. Imagine that.

    1. They always remind me of those kaleidoscopes we used to look through when we were children. And those white ‘dots’ look very much like tiny hearts if you look closely. Nature is amazing.

    1. They are very interesting flowers – they only open when the sun shines – so mine (not as gorgeous as this one) is tightly closed at the moment.

  2. It’s also a cracking shot, Jude. We brought some lovely pink Nerines home from the Logan when we were there, more than 15 years ago. Reminds me of the holiday every year when they flower. 🙂

    1. Nerines remind me of the Cape too. They are gorgeous flowers. I will do a post on Logan, it is an amazing garden, so unexpected!
