Our gardening romance with the most exotic and tropical-looking South African plants has very deep roots. Some 250 years ago, Scottish botanist Francis Masson was the first of the global plant explorers from the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, to study these plants. Masson brought to horticulture more than 400 species of South African plants such as the king protea, geranium, cineraria, calla lily, bird of paradise, red-hot-poker, Agapanthus and Amaryllis belladonna. He deserves many thanks for his contributions to our garden world!
Story: Ben enters a farm house that appears to be abandoned. Inside, though, he finds a barefoot young woman named Barbra who seems to be in shock. Eventually, Ben learns that Barbra and her brother Johnny had been attacked by “the living dead,” and that Johnny is dead. Barbra ran to the house before slipping into shock. Ben abandoned his truck, which needs fuel, and is seeking shelter in the same house.
