Tropical delights indeed. I love when flowers bloom year round. It's so uplifting. Beautiful series of colors and textures.

Like the Jacaranda tree; we have lots of them in South Africa; but alas they are alien to us, so we are not supposed to grow them.

Continue à nous faire rêver ... ces couleurs nous réchauffent !

Blooming trees brighten up a landscape. Although I have seen these three, I have never seen the Poinsettia like this. The red flowers with the yellow centers almost look artificial they are so perfectly shaped and colored. Nice photos, JM.

Plenty of poinsettias in pots in our shops ready for Christmas - so it's good to see some outside, where they should be.
My WV is 'achou' but I don't have a cold!

SO beautiful!

It's not fair JM! Nothing's blooming here at the moment.

This is beautiful, said with a bit of envy. Our November is much duller, leaves have banal brownish colors and I can't see many nice flowers around.

Photo Cache said...

wow your world is beautifully and naturally adorned for the holiday season.

These are great. I miss Bougainvillaea.

I've only ever seen Poinsettia in a planter wrapped in red cellophane, so interesting to see how they grow. Lots of great color for approaching winter.

Well!! What can I say--beautiful flowers but not for here. It is brrr cold here. Maybe a little snow by the weekend--or not.
The flowers give off such warmth. MB

Your bougainvillea plant, with the variegated leaves, really is quite different from ours.
