Because this page features more than one music clip and, also, because some
viewers find background music distracting, you invited to link to the music via
an image. This will open a media player, if you have one that plays mp3's.
Just minimize media player window (- upper right ) to continue reading.

Why South African music?
The plants, known by the common name, geranium, and the botanical name, Pelargonium,
are widely popular in homes, gardens and landscaping. The thousands of kinds of Pelargonium,
now grown throughout the world, descended from wild species indigenous to South Africa.
This music is a tribute to their origin.
