Winter red

  
It has been an unusually warm August. Cherry, magnolia and jasmine flowers are bursting forth in response. The above bush in Petersham Park, Sydney, Australia appears to be bearing miniature hibiscus blooms. Or could it be a camellia?

I am fascinated by these yellow flowers, some clusters appear to have grown in circles. This circle has a runaway!

The leaves resemble those of a dandelion, however the flowers don’t transmute into a powderpuff.
