This field of bromeliads at St Georges Park makes for a very colourful display...............



..............but the true beauty is revealed when you get up close and personal.

Awesome closeup. You don't really get the real beauty of any flower if you haven't seen it up close yet.

Gorgeous! Bromeliads are beautiful, but are seen in these climes only in botanical gardens. It's lovely to see them "outside."

Wow - beautiful! Have only seen them as pot plants - seeing them in a field must be amazing. Close up they are stunning!

Oh, I love these bromeliads! My dad has a whole slope covered with them at his house in Walmer - they just propagate themselves! That second shot is SO perfectly exposed.
