JUstDreamInparadise.......JUDI living in Paradise

I am fifty something and I love my family and the life I live. I'm an optimistic person by nature and I try to find a positive for every negative. I'm not a vegetarian, but the animal I eat is. I enjoy cooking, photography and scrapbooking. Since living here I have become a gardener and take immense joy in the beauty of my garden. My husband and I feel that we are the caretakers of the land rather than land owners. We run a grass fed Droughtmaster Stud on our little piece of Paradise and the cattle are a never ending supply of photo opportunities.

Brazilian Red Cloak Flower

Yesterdays photo challenge at Fat Mum Slim was "Kitchen" so I went out into the garden and picked some flowers to give my white kitchen a bit of colour.
I cut some flowers from a beautiful bush that I have in my garden. It has a lovely red flower  and I've been calling the bush a Brazilian Torch.  But a google search showed that this was not its name.  So I   asked my gardener and the knowledgeable person that she is, informed me that it is a Brazilian Red Cloak - close!

Here's the photo that I submitted for the FMS Photo A Day competition - Kitchen.
