Bottlebrushes en masse!



I didn't get out and about with my camera at all yesterday so I thought you might like to see what I look at while writing the blog, this and the 'rustic' birdbath you've seen here. Pull it in and see all those vibrant red flowers and you can see why they're called Bottlebrushes :) The parrots love this tree and do they make a mess.. I'll say they do, but I still love it when they fly in! What do you look at while you're preparing your posts? Hope that you are enjoying your weekend, bit cloudy and a few showers here in Perth, nice! Take care and stay safe.. p.s. these trees are used a lot for roadside planting and look amazing en masse when they're flowering towards the end of summer and all through spring.

  1. I really like these trees. We have a lot of them here in Central Florida! Gorgeous shot, too.

    BTW, I'm posting a bit on L & L Photography (http://www.landlfotos.com/blog.html) Would love to have you visit!

  4. Love the colors of this post; the blooms are vividly red. When I'm writing posts, I'm usually looking out over my front lawn if I'm using my iMac but if I'm wandering around the house or at a coffee shop with my Mac air I could be seeing entirely different images.

  8. I once saw wattle birds and lorikeets battling it out for control of a bottlebrush. The lorikeets won. I look at my screen when I prepare my posts :-P

  11. What a fantastic tree. We have those here too but, I've never seen one this big and with so many blooms. I do have a window next to the desk in my new place but, the view outside is just more condos. The view from the other side of the place looks at mountains but where I have my little office it's more condos.

  12. A very pretty and unique tree.

    I normaly sit in the kitchen when I do my postings, and I enjoy the view out into the garden. It is dark, windy and rainy no.... We also have changed the time, so it is one hour back... I like the kitchen, with our DAB radio, our red items , like the toaster and the coffee machine ..... So GOD MORGEN to you, Grace!:)

  17. They are such unique trees, the bottle brush. The red flowers in this photograph make your photograph appear 3D on my screen. It's either that or the jet lag!

  25. Very interesting to see an australian flora example! There might be some species in mediterranean that bare some resemblance to this tree but only in general.
