Blue Christmas with Salmon Poinsettias: Flower of the Day, Jan 7, 2017

In Mexico, Christmas is celebrated from December 12th to January 6th. That is why the gorgeous tree at the Nueva Posada hotel in Ajijic was still up when I went there to read poetry yesterday.  So glad as I forgot my camera the last time I was there. This is the display beneath the tree.  I’ll post the tree on Thursday.


Hibiscus? Flower of the Day, Dec 18, 2016


Doesn’t look much like a hibiscus to you?  It is a macro of the center of the calyx after the flower has withered and fallen off.  It was just so intriguing to me that I had to post it.  It reminds me of something, but I can’t quite put my mind’s finger on what it is.

They’re Here, They’re There, They’re Everywhere: Flower of the Day, Dec 14, 2016


As I explained yesterday, I planted one little thunbergia vine to the far right of this photo a few years ago.  Now where are they? (Click on first photo to enlarge and read captions.)

Somehow, they’ve jumped both the wall and the sidewalk and are twining around just about everything.  All of these fellows are on far left of the first photo, and on the other side of the sidewalk from the original location of the vine

As Cee goes obsessive regarding poinsettias, I’m using it as an excuse to obsess over thunbergia.
