A Week of Flowers – Sunday

Cathy, who blogs at Words and Herbs, challenged us to post a flower image every day for a week to disperse some of the gloom and doom we are facing this winter. Flowers are a wonderful thing..

This is the flower of the Flaming Torch Bromeliad (Billbergia pyramidalis) Locals call this Hurricane Bromeliad as it flowers during the hurricane season. Mine bloomed twice this summer, the last time a couple of weeks ago. Hurricane season runs until November 30.

    Gorgeous, reminds me of red licorice candy! ๐Ÿ™‚
    Bet you’ll be glad when hurricane season is in the rear view mirror. Happily, it was too bad for you this year, right? Not so much for the Gulf states.
