I just got home from the US and want to say a big thank-you to all my fellow Blotanists who voted for me in this year's awards. I've really enjoyed being part of this blogging community for the last few months and made some great friends and am especially honoured that my humble blog got voted for and placed in two of the categories. Again - thank you!
I'm too tired to do a long entry today, but wanted to leave you with this amazing plant that I saw on my way to the airport yesterday at the Marie Selby Botanical Gardens in Sarasota - it's a stunner and I've certainly never seen one before, although I'm sure that many other Blotanists will already know it.
This is the White Bat flower - tacca integrifolia - also known as cat's whiskers and devil's tongue, a perennial that is found naturally in South-East Asia, India and China. But if you're in Florida... don't miss it while it's in flower.
