Christmas Plants in the Virgin Islands

December 15th, 2009

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas here in the Virgin Islands. Here are some pictures of some of the seasonal plants that let us know we’re approaching the holiday season — since it snows only very rarely here in St. Thomas. The Christmas plants with flowers have them only during this time of year.

There are captions for each picture, which you can see by hovering. When you do so, the slideshow will temporarily stop until you move back off the picture. I don’t know the real names of some of these plants, so I’ve given you the local name, if the plant has one. And, as you can see, they are not all “house plants”, but they all could be.

I’m going to use a different method of showing you the pictures this time. Last time, I used a gallery script of my own design to be able to show all the slides in a small space. This time, I’m using a slideshow script, which is not my own. ( Why re-invent the wheel? This script in my opinion is the best one available on the internet. )
