A few more photos from the garden before I go.

Gladiolus 
This beautiful Gladiolus, belonging to the species Gladiolus decoratus (Asparagales - Iridaceae), is native to Tanzania, Malawi, Mozambique and Zimbabwe. As the specific name suggests - decoratus = handsome, elegant, decorative -, the flowers of this plant are truly showy.
Flowers are bright orange-red or dark red, and each of the lower tepals has a median streak which may be white to yellow.

Winter jasmine
The bright yellow, star-shaped flowers of the Winter jasmine, Jasminum nudiflorum (Lamiales- Oleaceae), are always a showy view. Although this species is native to Northern China, due to its beauty it has been naturalized in many countries.
Interestingly, this plant has been studied by the inhibitory effect of the leaves extract on the corrosion of cold rolled steel (an industrial concern).
