Beautiful! Blooming Poinsettias here where I live all come from hothouses, and are available only around the Christmas season (December). Sometimes, we can grow them in pots outside during the summer, but they are not in bloom then, just green leaves.

Thanks for sharing your lovely photo.

Realmente o bico-de-papagaio é uma arbusto de preferência nacional. É difícil encontrar um jardim sem ele.

Além de ser lindo é muito resistente.

Beautiful flower photo, even though pointsettias are not technically flowers (but bracts) but who cares about that? This is so well composed, so bright and cheerful, and I like that it looks tropical and sunny, instead of the way we northerners usually see them, with cold all around, at Christmastime. Thanks for a delightful photo.

Paz disse...

Beautiful photos!
