Two Queens And An Old Lion From Africa

Bird of paradise flower or Crane flower or STRELITZIA REGINA
I just call them queens of Africa.

The Strelitzia is a striking flower, somewhat bird-like in shape consisting of long green bracts with purple edges that surround orange flowers with bright-blue tongues.
They are evergreen and indigenous with tight clusters of fleshy stems bearing long, oblong, grey - green leaves. 
They are Queens.

Broken Open.....

And the old lion in the bush.
Queens that can turn into old lions.
A life cycle.
