The same flowers world wide

The flowers out here in the savannah are gorgeous.  Every month there’s a new variety blooming.

Last month was fox gloves.

This month it’s holly hocks (these are growing wild, mind you).

About the same time the hollyhocks started blooming here, my friend at Maple Valley Off-Grid Farm posted this photo on her blog.

Hollyhocks in the dry savannahs of Africa.  Hollyhocks in a meadow in Michigan.  The more I think we’re different, the more examples I see that we’re just alike.

    Oh, there’s no doubt about flowers being the same. Many of the flowers we have in our garden originated from your area, even starting way back in the 1800’s when the Europeans began colonizing the area. Lots of Victorian cottage gardens got their start in Southern Africa.

    It’s s small world,… and the world is a very big place. No matter, it sure is a beautiful world! Love the blooming flowers! I’m a fan of whatever grows wild in the fields, wherever you are. In Texas it was the Bluebonnets in spring, here it is the fragrant Plumeria, the Hibiscus, the Bougainvillea, but my all time favorite is the color you see when our Flame trees bloom. I guess that red, yellow, orange are my happy colors! So nice for you to have growing wild there, the flowers you are familiar with from home.
