God's Christmas Tree Part 2


the buds burst a little each day and it is blooming now, the first flower was on Dec 9th this year.

to view the size of the bush, check it out from last year, the whole bush... CLICK HERE  and the label powder puff below shows the zillions of pics I have taken.



and about the 3rd day it is a 3 to 4 inch glorious ball of color. it blooms for several months.


And it makes a great Christmas Card.

Woof! Woof! You got my mom thinking after my mom saw your previous post. We have those here ... it everywhere but all bloomed. She took several photos but not as pretty as yours. She definitely needs t learn how to use her camera. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

That last one would be a great Christmas card. I really like the little spots of white, it almost looks like snow.

These blossoms do make marvelous Christmas cards -- and gorgeous photos.

Inger said...

Wow! The flowers looks like fourth of July fireworks, burst into air. You would be so tired of the eternal tan colors of this land around here this time of year and most of the time, actually. You have just too many gorgeous things where you are.

Looks like Wednesdays post has decided to arrive, and boy am I glad! These are beautiful, I always love seeing them!!! My favorites are #2 and the last one! If I would have seen these sooner, I would have asked you if I could put them on our Christmas card, a really smashing idea.

Maggie M said...

Oh, my goodness!! What a gorgeous plant. Hope you post more pictures as changes come. I would love to see one of these in person when in full bloom. Your pictures are fabulous and I thank you for sharing this beauty in pictures. I will most likely never get to see a real one so seeing your pictures of this gorgeous plant is a real treat.

It sure does look like fireworks in the ones with the black background, love how the bright pink stands out against the dark. So beautiful! :)

There's no tree decorated by man (or woman) that can match it, for sure!
