Pohutukawa Po-hoo-ta-car-wa
Metrosideros excelsa

This is the NZ Pohutukawa tree, commonly known as "The New Zealand Christmas Tree". Around Christmas-time it smothers itself with masses of brilliant crimson to deep blood-red flowers.

I hope this will bring cheer to you all who live UP NORTH...

"Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night!

Janice, lovely colors and composition.

Best wishes for you and the ones you love.

By the way: how do you like the D70?

Thank you Janice for this colorful Christmas offering. Hope you had a Great Christmas!
Thank You.

So colourful and in the middle of the winter! Great! We try to survive this part of the year with poinsettas in pots, indoors. Everything is grey here, but right now some white snow, too.
