Mystery Flowers

I am rather late posting tonight because David's brother Paul and his wife Val arrived this afternoon from Queensland. They will be staying for a few days, so I will be limited on checking out 365 until they leave again.

We were relieved that they managed not to get held up along the way due to the bushfires.

I took these photos while we were in Mittagong recently and have no idea what variety of flowers they are. Can anyone identify them for me please?

It is much colder in Mittagong in the Southern Highlands so we don't see these where we live because it is probably too hot for them.

Will catch up when I get chance, but tomorrow we will be rather busy as we are having a lunch for 30 of our friends at the golf club to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary. It isn't actually our anniversary until next Tuesday though, so I will probably post photos of that next week.
The one on the right is Bears Breeches.. not quite sure of the other.. i'll think on tbar one over night.. lol

Bear’s britches and lion’s tails. Just the coolest plant names ever, @julzmaioro!

Glad there are people who can name these because I couldn't! Have a super time with your family.

Two fabulous images. I know the one on the right as acanthus. Not sure of the one on the left.

I hope your air stays clear for your anniversary party.

The one of the left is acanthus aka Bear Claws in the vernacular. Not a clue on t'other.
