Flowers and plants in Theresa's neighborhood

Here are some plants I saw on our walk. I noticed that there are a lot of ornamentals from South Africa in all the yards.

Gazania - native to South Africa

I don't know what this grass is, but it sure is attractive in the late afternoon sun.

Lantana - a noxious weed in Australia.

Hibiscus - a noxious weed in my yard back home in Ohio.

Foxtail grass.

Haven't a clue, but the young foliage is bright red. (update on 3/24/06 - this is Photinia in the rose family)

Sweetgum in flower (aka "spiny eggs" in my yard back home).
