I’m so happy that I’ve found the names of these lovely little flowers!! This Gaura lindheimeri was captured in Orania, Northern Cape of South Africa. It is also called the Engelm. & Gray Lindheimer’s beeblossom, White gaura, Butterfly gaura Onagraceae

This is a perennial (ht to 1.2m) related to the evening primrose plant (Oenothera inthe Onagraceae family of plants. Its tendency to self-seed has led it to be banned from sale in nurseries for a few years.

Living on a farm, as I do, I’m provided unique opportunities to photograph plants and creatures. There are not many trees here, and no mountains or rocks; but there are a lot of fields! The bright sun gives me many lovely silhouettes to capture; while the rain brings out tiny plants and creatures. Sometimes I visit another town or province; and then my Canon EOS 550D works overtime.
