Yeh

One day I want to go there (soon)
must be a fantastic country to explore
Probably I will rent a car and just drive around
enjoying the nature
must be the same feeling as I had in the Rockies, British Columbia
suddenly you feel yourself very small

Then you'll need a 4W drive! And lots of water . . . . .

It is a very pleasant trip from Nairobi, Kenya to Arusha, Tanzania. And you have several mountains to explore around there, not necessarily to climb the summit but to look at the flora and fauna on the mountain shoulders. The great plains and game reseves are near too.

Fantastic colours! I guess these would be in the greenhouse- do you have to heat the greenhouse at all?

Drop-dead eye-catching!

Is it naturally a summer or winter grower?

Yes it is in the greenhouse but little or no heat required this year so far. I only keep it a few degrees above freezing.

Yes it is a winter grower and flowers early spring.
