Torch Ginger

We've been very busy over the past week so the Blog has had to take a back seat. Now we have a quiet couple of days before our next guests arrive over the weekend so we have time to catch up in the gardens. Lots of beautiful Torch Gingers (Etlingera elatior) are out now - this one, as big as your hand, is one of many near one of the guest bungalows.

We are really hoping that the magnificent Buff-Breasted Paradise Kingfishers will return any day - they migrate to Asia over our winter and normally come back in October but with the strange weather patterns this year we have yet to see or hear any - and guests are coming next Sunday especially expecting to see them!
