TODAY'S FLOWERS ~ Dressed all in Red


Tis the season to be jolly and my flowers are joining in.
The garden is a blaze of green and red.


The Christmas cactus has in excess of 40 blooms on it.


The poppies are pulling their weight in spades, come rain
or shine, they glow like freshly polished fire engines


and guess what? The bees love them as much as I do.

  10. Hallo Arija,

    Das ist ja wunderschön diese leuchtenden Farben zu sehen.
    Wir müssen noch etwas länger darauf warten. Der Winter ist schon vor dem 1. Dezember bei uns eingezogen, viel früher als in den letzten Jahren.
    ... und vielleicht gibt es ja ein weisses Weihnachtsfest.

    Liebe Grüsse Hartmut
