Have you ever wondered??

The Bird of Paradise flower (Strelitzia reginae) is quite an interesting and beautiful flower.
(Not one of my better photos but needed for this post... perhaps my tip should be DON'T HURRY)

BUT... Have you ever wondered what the Bird of Paradise looks like when the flower dies and it goes to seed?

Well I learned something new today...

Very good, Liz. They are beautiful plants, and we see plenty of them around. A bit of a shame we don't have the birds they're named after to photograph!!

We have many of these back in the Philippines, and they have become common sights to us. But I've never noticed at all the seeds when they're dry. They're beautiful! This is new to me too. Thanks for sharing.

Nice photos of the Bird of Paradise flower and seeds. Although I have them in my garden I have never noticed the seeds. There are always birds pecking at the flowers so maybe they have taken the seeds before I can see them. Do you have the other variety (Strelitzia Nicolai)- it's a much larger plant and the flowers are blue and white.
