Always stun me.
Here, in this land of change and chance…I mean, c’mon, Christmas should be chilly
even cold. No? Maybe cloaked in red and green.
When else do we have permission to light fires, drink hot cocoa?
But EVERY year in this little piece of paradise… I am reminded of the quiet beauty
That is a tropical Christmas.
Bromeliads blooming…just now. Especially now. Fuchsia and purple.
I call them my Christmas Bromeliads.
They are resplendent in color.
Parading. Curling. Begging us to notice.
While we have been busy with shopping, and parties and life… and whatev…. We may very well not notice…
They are low, inconspicuous.
But so so stunning. Kick you in the shin, look at ME stunning.
I love being reminded to look…like I was today. I as ran to my Mom’s looking for cream of tartar.
And it also makes me realize why our Christmas is full of the BRIGHTEST Pinks and purples.
Merry Merry Christmas…In all of it’s colors.
To you….and to Yours!
