Just noticed it's flowering in spots.

This is a magnificent tree when in full bloom -- unfortunately this only happens about once a decade, other years it's patchy.

When it fully flowers, all the leaves drop off first and it's a mass of scarlet on top of a 40 foot trunk -- you can see it for miles.

Four views with the FZ20, from full wide to the Sony 1.5x telextender.

I should probably use the tripod -- at 80-something I shake a bit, no matter how I try (isn't IS marvellous.)

Maybe they're poisonous -- I never see anything eat them (but then I'm rarely that far off the ground.)

Perhaps one could sneak them into a tomato salad?

The local white cockatoos have great fun snipping them off and watching them fall.
