pohutukawas

Although these beauties are considered the 'NZ Christmas Tree', they don't usually bloom in Taranaki until after the first of the year. This spring and summer have been quite dry, though, and I'm sure that has had an effect on their blooming cycle for them to start blooming a bit earlier than usual.

They are beautiful! Because of our weird weather here and how warm it has been, many of our spring blooming plants are currently flowering. I'm worried that there won't be any azaleas in March.

Thanks for sharing with us at Photo Friday!
