Where ever you live, what ever faith you follow or not, have a happy and peaceful Festive Season. In Australia at this time of year we often find Christmas Bells growing in the burnt out patches of scrub on sandy soil. Their colour is very strong and distinctive amongst the blackened remnants of the fire. A sign of tenacity and renewal.
This glorious Poinciana Tree is now in full bloom and I see it every time I travel into town. One of those cheery Chrismassy coloured plants we have in Australia at this time of year, along with the Poinsettia, Christmas Bush and Christmas Bells.
