I'm joining Pam's Foliage Follow-Up meme and Tootsies' Fertiliser Friday/Flaunt Your Flowers meme today.
Right now it's our first month of Winter here in the northern tropics of Oz. You know it's Winter here when you see the Poinsettias showing off and my Euphorbia pulcherrimas are showing their stunning bracts right now. People often think the bright leaves or bracts look like flamboyent flowers. But if you look closely in the centre of these bracts, you will see the rather insignificant yellowish cluster of true flowers. Therein lies the reason for my posting about Poinsettias as part of Foliage Follow-Up and Flaunt Your Flowers.
It took me a while, but I finally have a couple of immature ones growing in my outdoor tiered garden bed. I can't wait for them to mature and see them absolutely covered in their coloured bracts and tiny little flowers at this time of year. For now though, they're quite young but they still put on a great display.
Make sure you pop over to visit Pam at Digging and check out all the foliage follow-up posts listed in the comments section. You won't be disappointed!
Then go to see what's in flower at Tootsie Time. Enjoy!
