Another 2 for 1: you lucky lucky people!
This is from the beautiful botanical gardens on the Western Cape, south of Cape Town, South Africa. It’s from July 2009, (their Winter, it looks even better in Spring & Summer).
It’s also my entry for this week’s Gallery, on the theme of “Trees”; again randomly selected, so again I got lucky.
Why not pop over to Tara’s Gallery at Sticky Fingers for more arboreal artistry? (click the pic):

Look more closely: wrapped around the stamen are actually 2 small frogs, camouflaging themselves brilliantly. Well it fooled me, anyway!
From the excellent Cape Town Aquarium, July 2009.
