It's a long way from Toronto to the Turks and Caicos
I think anyone can use some colour right now so fire up that space heater, angle that floor lamp, slather on some sunscreen, prepare some margaritas and dream a little...
Dwarf Poinciana (Caelsalpinia pulcherrima)
Gorgeous red, orange and yellows.
The stamens remind me of eyelashes!
Red Ixora coccinea (Jungle Flame) blooms
|Big ole hibiscus, nothing subtle!|
|One of my favourites, all texture and colour|
Tradescantia spathacea (dwarf Boat lily)
|Red bougainvillea bracts with white flowers|
|White plumeria alba (frangipani)|
Kind of a pinwheel, the petals' edging is cupped
and different on these plumeria
|White crinum lily |
