This pretty looking stalk is from the Parafin bush.....
...heaven alone knows what it was doing in the garden as it is a weed and one banned from our gardens.
Aren't these lovely? Such a lot of colors to please the eye.
I do know know what this shrub is called but it was full of these lovely buds.
Mainly aloes but this shows you some of the variety of plants they use in the gardens and come in all shapes and colors.
Dotted along the pathways are nice benches to sit on and enjoy the quiet harmony of the place or maybe eat some sandwiches. I do prefer sitting on the lawn though. Benches are for old people. LOL!!
