Flowers for Friday

My Coffee plant has started putting out its pretty white blooms. The snowy flowers make a nice contrast to the glossy green leaves of the coffee plant. The flowers are mildly fragrant, and will turn into breen berries quite soon.
The red Poinsettia bush in a corner of my garden has at last realized that it has to show its flowers, before the winter passes. This is the first time it has been so late in blooming.

The pale yellow Poinsettia was also late in blooming this year, but there were a few blooms on the bush on Christmas day.
My thanks to Tootsie for hosting this wonderful meme.
You can see blooms from all over the world in Fertilizer Friday at Tootsie Time.

  1. I'm curious, are you able to grind the coffee berries to make coffee? The blooms are pretty and the leaves so shiny!

  12. How nice to see so many coffee flowers in bloom and to have a blooming poinsettia in the garden. In our climate, even a potted blooming poinsettia will turn green sooner or later.
