Bright Bromeliad




I find bromeliads quite strange plants, growing inconspicuously then producing vivid flower spikes in their own time.




This one grows under our frangipani tree and is currently flowering, with some similarities to one I shared earlier.




Their bright colours certainly make the bromeliad easy to spot while in flower.
