Day 312 – Bloomin’ red.
Keeping things red and in the theme of Chinese New Year. With a sprinkle of rain the bottle brush has come out to play again, in time for the celebrations. It’s a good thing it is a very hardy plant because it pretty much looks after itself. It’s official botanical name is Callistemon, derived from a Greek words kallos and stemon meaning beauty and stemen for its showy bits.
