Look……

It’s almost Winter, but looks what’s flowering….

20140526-145432.jpgIt’s the Pincushion Hakea – very aptly named! – and I have no idea if it’s meant to be flowering now or not!!

Have a lovely day.

    What a beauty! Perhaps the flowers are confused about the weather as we are….

    Those hakea flowers are beautiful. I love our Australian flowers! I’ve been seeing frangipani trees in full bloom, hard to believe for this time of year.

    I love the pincushion plant. In CA we have a bottle brush bush which looks like red bottle brushes on the ends of the branches.
