"Her Madness" and the Dwarf Poinciana


Our tiny little Dwarf Poinciana tree, about 24 inches tall,  lives in a bucket.


The pod opens 1 or 2 flowers each day, bright red with yellow trim, and the next day turns red. It makes  a beautiful flaming POD..


Pardon My Snapping, our Poinciana has been Snapperfied 
by Her Madness, the MadSnapper.

Bonnie from The Writers Kitchen called me Your Madness and another blogger called my work Snapperfied. Can't remember whom or who.
UPDATE: It was Ginny at Let Your Light Shine that coined the word Snapperfied.

I only have TEN Prior Post on these flowers Click Here if you are interested.

Wow! I always enjoy these. They looks like the most exotic of rare flowers. My fave is number three! I was the one who said your work is Snapperfied. I read Bonnie's comment at the time and got a huge laugh. She has a very funny sense of humor.

It is beautiful! Reminds me a little of my spring and fall jumpups or whatever they are called, except mine are red. I don' think I have ever seen a Poinciana before.
