I wish you all a happy weekend on this bee-autiful morning! ☀️ it seems the #honeybees 🐝 have invited friends over today! I've never seen a single flower attract as many #bees ! This tree is a total star ⭐️ and I feel extremely fulfilled, witnessing this in a city garden! (Mummy is suggesting taking a #beekeeping course offered nearby) #oncoba #friedeggtree #beefriendly #pollinators #wildlife #bestof2017 #bestofGT

Not long now, Jane 😊 how many varieties of bees do you observe in your area? I don't know my bees very well, but I like bumblebees because they look friendly and cute and cuddly. We don't get them here, not that I'm aware of. @pelly

I find that the more I prune this tree, @latebloomer , the more profusely it flowers. Super bee friendly

This reminds me so much of the Californian Tree poppy, probably related somehow. Lovely flowers 👌🏼

In terms of looks, this is as close as I get to camellias @brightcolours @Keely

Unless you count the tiny begonias which are like miniature camellias 😍

They do well in my subtropical climate but I don't have a fried egg tree. The local Botanical Gardens does though.

Aptly called the Fried egg tree, this humongous flower is native to Africa. The flower lasts about a day and is mildly fragrant! ☀️ #tree #rare #flower #white #africa
