Its Feeling a Lot Like Christmas

I have been waiting weeks for my Pohutukawa Tree to bloom.

When it does - its signals Christmas

It's nicknamed the New Zealand Christmas Tree. 
You can read more about it on the Wikipedia page.

I love driving along the roads and seeing all the red flowers against the blue sky. So beautiful...

Now my tree has started to bloom and I can admire it every day, because its Christmas Time ..yay!!! Happy Dance
 Gorgeous right? I love these trees.... In a few days they will be alive with bumble bees and birds.
 And not only do they mean Christmas time but also the start of our Summer holidays....cant wait.

Take care everyone,

Don't forget to follow me on Facebook :-)




  1. It's beautiful, it looks so much like our bottle brush trees yay summer!

  2. I have never heard of this gorgeous tree Nat! I love it! And I'm a little jealous that you are about to celebrate summer while we are about to face a cold and mostly foliage-free winter!


Don't forget to leave me some comment love.....
