Bird of paradise

Thank you to Marni Zainodin for send me such awesome postcard.

Heliconia is a genus of about 100 to 200 species of flowering plants native to the tropical Americas and the Pacific Ocean islands west to Indonesia. Common names for the genus include lobster-claws, wild plantains or false bird-of-paradise.

This flower is exquisite, Lay Hoon - and it does my heart good to be seeing this in our snow and ice-bound city!
