Seeds In Winter

Last year i bought a new plant because the others went brown, couldn’t cope with my way of live i guess. So i purchased a stronger succulant plant. Hoped its was more fit for the struggle.
Its my favourite plant now.. Alas i forgot its name, i only remember it originally grows in South America on slopes of mountains.
And i think the plant loves me.. In the autumn many offshoots and little buds appeared. And when these buds burst open beautiful vivid orange flowers ‘amazed’.. And this plant -cleverly- didn’t this all on the same time but in the course of weeks every day when i woke up new ones could be admired. Until the last bud -- and the flowers wilt.
They became pale. Normally i cut these away but this time i let them ‘hang loose’. The plant had another surprise.. this week amazing little white fluffy bulbs appeared. The seeds of the plant.

A soft breeze from the south is scattering them.. "fwhhhh"

if that flowering plant is not this:

Protea lacticolor

then, i believe that is a kind of "Passiflora" or "Passion Flower"..
hmm, maybe you could check this for list and pictures of each kind:
