Wordless Wednesday..New Zealand Christmas Tree

 Native tree to New Zealand - Pohutakawa  (pronunciation: 'po' as in go - 'hoo' and 'too' as in too - 'kar' and 'war' as in far the 'r' is silent) The tree blooms in early December, just in time for Christmas.

Beautiful capture, delightful flower and lovely colors! Thanks for sharing! Have a great day!



Perfect colour for Christmas :)


What a pretty tree! Very unusual!


Now that is a gorgeous tree!


Perfect for Christmas! Is it also called Calistemon? That is what it reminds me of, which I think is from New Zealand, but does grow here-there is one in the front garden of a pretty house across from us.
I finally remembered the giveaway I had last week, and you were one of the names out of the hat(well off the table!). Send me your address and I will get it in the post as soon as I can!

Christmas on the beach, enjoying the sunshine, with a show of Pohutakawa on the shore. Nothing quite like Christmas in New Zealand!
