Blooming Friday-Colours of Christmas

The geraniums are flowerinng now, reminding one that Christmas is not far.

The Cricifix Orchid is putting out more flowers. Tou can see the 'crucifix' clearly if you click on the flower.

The Crown of Thorns, Euphorbia milii is also putting out lots of flowers.

The Poinsettia, Euphorbia pulchrima, is of course, the flower which is associated with Christmas.
Many more flowers which are associated with Christmas in this part of the world are blooming now. Please visit Katarina at Roses and Stuff for more Blooming Friday pictures.


  1. I am so envious that you live in a place that you are enjoying flowers this time of year!

    Beautiful photos!

  2. I love your blooms! I think the euphorbia is my favorite.

  3. Very pretty! It's difficult to grow geraniums here although I've tried several times. (I've given up now):( Love all your colours!

  4. Lovely blooms and the bracing Bangalore weather, to boot. What more could one ask for? Enjoy, Lotusleaf!

  5. Funny, that you remeber christmas by geraniums. Mine are sleeping in the cellar in darkness and chill.So different, still the same planet;-) Have a nice weekend!

  6. I was thinking the same as Lillebeth - how strange that Geraniums are at their best at Christmas in your part of the it's a typical summer bloomer.
    Have a great weekend!

  7. Lovely flowers. Have a nice weekend. Lena/isis

  9. A lovely glimpse from a warmer corner of the world! I'm guessing you won't have a white xmas... Have a great weekend!

  10. Water roots:Yes, I am thankful for the climate of my city too.
    Sue: Thank you.
    Kanak: I think geraniums don't like humidity.
    Shailaja: Thanks for your comment.
    Lilibeth: It is strange that on the same planet, different things are blooming in different places.
