Flowers for May Day

Even though I live in the Southern Hemisphere, I feel I cannot let May Day go without comment.  The Bottlebrush, Callistemon sp. growing in my front yard has just begun to flower.  A welcome splash of colour in the grey days.

I think you can see why they are nicknamed “Bottle Brushes” 🙂  The nectar feeding birds love them, and I’m hoping to capture a few images of the local birds having a feed, as more flowers open up.

PS. Today the computer has decided to co-operate!  Go figure…….  🙂

  1. Congrats on the computer working (for now). I’ve seen lots of bottlebrushes around Joburg — lovely trees although I guess they are a non-native species here.

  2. These are amazing images — such color! Wow! I’m glad your computer cooperated for you on this one. I’m wondering if there is anything similar that grows in the north. I can’t think of anything so brightly colored.
