Same serial: Flowers - just from different hotly location,
Costa Rica, Mexico, Cuba etc...

This time nice Orange Clivia from Montego Bay, Jamaica...
Maybe later on, begin to upload a small serial...

A mature plant of Clivia can be 2 to 3 feet tall and almost as wide, with long, arching swordlike leaves. It requires a large, wide-based, clay pot that won't tip over. Like many flowering plants, clivia prefers to be kept root bound and can remain in the same pot for as long as five years. Since it takes a few years for a Clivia plant to bloom, it's best to purchase a mature plant, unless you are very patient.

Jamaica is an island nation of the Greater Antilles, 234 kilometers in length and as much as 80 kilometers in width situated in the Caribbean Sea. It is about 145 kilometers south of Cuba, and 190 kilometers west of the island of Hispaniola, on which Haiti and the Dominican Republic are situated. Its indigenous Arawakan-speaking Taíno inhabitants named the island Xaymaca, meaning the "Land of Wood and Water", or the "Land of Springs". Formerly a Spanish possession known as Santiago, it later became the British Crown colony of Jamaica. It is the third most populous anglophone country in North America, after the United States and Canada. It remains a Commonwealth realm.

Anthem: "Jamaica, Land We Love" - Royal anthem: "God Save the Queen"

Montego Bay strip located near the hip, this beach theme park features water sports and go-kart racing. The beautiful, manicured grounds, pristine beach, secure location and underwater murals make this a great spot for children and families seeking a change of scenery from the hotel pool.

Good arrangement of the orange red flowers, in an approximate circular pattern. Excellent dof, sharpness, & saturation, & a nice complimentary dark green bg. Tfs!
