We have spent the last two weeks mostly in doors. For the first time in 24 years we have both been ill at the same time with the most horrendous virus.
How heartening it was today to spot this plump red beauty with yellow tips. The first botttlebrush I have seen in Spring 2017!

Judging by the number of posts on this blog that reference these trees, I believe I’m a little obsessed with them:

Chance to recover’s immense.
Why have trees near power lines?
Man Meets Nature
I couldn’t resist taking a picture of one of my favourite Australian natives.
