Your Art Class in Paradise


The bird of paradise flower is strikingly beautiful and exotic with its orange_to purple colors and its shape like a bird's beak. Even the scientific name is amazing. The Genus-species classification is Strelitzia reginae, named after Charlotte of Mecklenburg-Strelitz, queen consort of the United Kingdom. The plant has its origins in Africa and was cultivated at the Royal Botanical Gardens, Kew and introduced to Europe in 1773. Because it looks like an image of a bird in paradise it developed the name "The Bird of Paradise" and is grown all around the world. A student of Your Art Class brought some flowers to me and Your Art Class has enjoyed going to paradise with this lesson.
