|Possibly a type of Casuarina - these are not so much flowers as excrescences|
|Have no idea what this tree is either but it has little yellow star flowers like a Jasmine|
|Calistemon - usually prolific at this time of year, but few and far between this time|
|Sadly, most of them look like this - dying off before they are fully in bloom|
Though I wasn't sorry to be leaving the heat behind, I was a bit sad to be leaving Western Australia, knowing that I was unlikely to be back, now that my daughter and her little family were relocating to Queensland. This had been their home for the past six years or so, but such is the way in Australia. You have to be prepared to go where the work takes you. It makes the annual get together that is Christmas all the more important. Goodbye to the West and all the good friends there.
|That's more like it - see what I mean about Calistemons being Christmassy?|
