Thank-you , all, for the help. I went to the link provided by Ardesia, and it looks like my orange-flowering plants are indeed Crossandra.
I hope you don't mind but I do have other plants brought -in by my gardener and he doesn't use scientific names for them. This one in the picture he calls welcome plant. My problem is I don't know if it is a tree, a bush or a vine that needs support. So can anyone again please help me ID it ?
a pity it wasn't a Jacaranda, they are sooooooooooo gorgeous!!!! South Africa, where i originally come from, is very famous for them. but last i heard that they are now illegal to plant here because they have become invasive. such i pity i do so adore their display of color!
I have 6 dogs compared to your nine. I understand that you take care of street dogs, what a noble undertaking!
I have 2 whippets ( picture shown here), 2 basset hounds and 2 new addition...puppies with mixed breed of Japanese spitz and chow-chow.
The Galgo dog of Bravehearts mom is soooo handsome..I haven't seen one in my country.
we have five dogs, and unfortunately one is very sick. She is also an abandoned dog, a fox terrier crossed with a bull terrier. she is now 13 years old, but she is sick, and i don't know if she will make it. i really hope so, we love her sooooooo much.
dogs are such wonderful companions, i don't think i will be able to survive without one!
Here in Costa Rica there is a disease transmitted by ticks. So not all the species of ticks can transmit that disease to dogs, but I will say it is one of the main problems in the area where I live. Some of my dogs had Ehrlichia, then they were treated with an antibiotic for 3 weeks. Part of the life in the tropics!
westraad I hope that your friend feel better. They really can feel our love for them.
as in i told in the other thread, my dear friend died. She was the best dog we have ever had, and extremely smart. we all miss her terribly.
here and in South Africa we also get Typhus (sp?) from the ticks, though our dogs have never had it. a lot of americans who come here get it though, and thats strange as we never get it.
your whippet is very beautiful, and i am glad he is better!
I have been using this product as recommended by my vet to prevent ticks from attacking my pet dogs: FIPRONIL FRONTLINE SPRAY. After the regular shampoo or washing of your pet, spray this product on the coat. I have not had any problem with ticks and fleas eversince I used it.
Balaitalisai, just a note on your podranea...they put out roots like crazy. I found roots a 1/2 inch in diameter 20 feet away from the base of the plant. And, the plant does root everywhere it touches the ground.
