Flowers in the Garden

I really don't like summer. I love the summer fruit that is now appearing in the markets - I bought my first mango of the season this week! I also put up with summer because it's preceded by spring... ahhh beautiful spring. In Sydney the seasons just merge into a blur, but in Canberra they are extreme and distinct. These are the bottle brush in our garden. I love watching the blossoms unfurl from their tough exterior (top picture) and bloom into the most amazing flowers. We have several colours in our garden but the red is the biggest and most spectacular so of course it's picture worthy.
