Spectacular flower

Some years ago, Jenny gave me a Strelitzia regale (Bird of Paradise flower) plant. I was delighted, because they used to flower in Cape Town when I was a kid, but I'd never had one of my very own. It was rather small, so unsurprisingly, didn't flower straightaway.

This year, it did, and the first of three buds has just started opening.
