Pretoria - Part 2

These are some of the flowers from a few of the tiers....yellow and orange Day Lillies....
...and a mixed color one.
Portulaca's always make a beautiful groud cover......
and they had hundreds of bees on them.
I don't have a clue what these are called but I have seen them in a dark yellow too.
Pretty daisies.
This is the first time I have seen this flower. It is also tall like a lilly. Anyone know what it is called?
In the center of the lawns they have these round rings with different flowers too.
As the Union Buildings is on a hill, the view is terrific. Looking towards the west, you can see the center of town.
Pretoria is a very pretty town and always green no matter what the season.
