Shake Your Tail Petals

A flower commonly seen in Brisbane all year round is the Strelitzia, more commonly known as the Bird of Paradise flower, so named because it's petals look a bit like a bird of paradise's plumage. They also come in bright orange. In my local area, they have planted a large patch of them on the edge of a footpath on a busy road. It makes the walk past much nicer!
