Beverley Robinson, [ link ] celebrates a birthday on the 10th February, a small bit of Australian colour for your day Bev and many happy returns.

The flower is a Gazania, a native of South Africa which grows prolifically in many parts of Australia, this one I found in City Park. For more on this plant see [ link ]
