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.
