It looks like it belongs on a coral reef! Like it wants to reach out and grab a fish. What spectacular colors!

Walli, that's gorgeous! I know it is a bromeliad bloom, but I can't remember which one. Anyone that can help?

Thanks!

It seems early for the candlestick broms to be blooming already. I'll have to check mine. They are such pretty flowers.

Katkin, you triggered my memory. I think it is actually called Matchstick. Thank you for the help!

Mine bloomed in January. Thanks wallisadi for sharing with me! They are so pretty!

They are just now fading - I will look forward to them every year!
