HNT: Kiwi Christmas Tree

Thursday, December 10, 2009



In New Zealand, we have what we call our 'Kiwi Christmas Tree'. Its proper name is Pohutakawa. It grows in the coastal areas and flowers prolifically over Christmas time, hence its known as the Kiwi Christmas Tree. At the moment, we have literally thousands of these trees dotted all over the city and along the coast in all their flowering beauty.

Happy Half-Nekkid Thursday everyone and be sure to go and check out Osbasso to see who else is playing along this week!

Oh that's just not fair! I mean, yeah, I was outside barefoot just this morning but it was 18 degrees Fahrenheit!

You look like you're enjoying it more. :-)

Happy HNT, Petal,

Heh! They do have a Christmasy kinda look! And match your little red toenails quite well!

Dharma said...

That really is a very Christmasy looking flower. So pretty.

I love bare feet, too. Matter of fact, living in the Deep South of the US, I go bare-footed a lot in the colder months. Or at least in flip-flops.

HHNT!
