Tomorrow my Christmas starts. We have family coming for the big day, so I won’t be online too much.
Munji trees amaze me. They’re parasites and live off any tree or bush that is near them. This one in particular is awesome, because three weeks ago I would have sworn it was dead! No leaves, nothing that was remotely green; it looked dried and shriveled.
Yesterday had had to take a closer look – I thought I could see buds on it. I realised that it was beginning to flower and now today, it looks like this.
Munji’s flower at Christmas time and are known as WA’s native Christmas Tree – vivid orange flowers, that smell disgusting, but the ants love!
Even though I thought this tree was dead, it’s bloomed beautifully and that’s what Christmas is about: New Life.
So as I wait to welcome family for Christmas I really want to say, to all of you, who have supported me, bought my books, left me wonderful messages or emails or just done something – from the bottom of my heart, thank you. I wish you all a wonderful and safe Christmas and I hope that 2011 brings you everything you wish for.
Lovely post so very evocative of Christmas, Fleur. Hope you and your family and friends have a safe and happy Christmas.
