I once got some massage oil that was scented with that. Never knew what they looked like. It's a pretty flower, and I like the way the rain drops are hanging off the first one.

Well ... now you know :) They are quite common as trees around here. The flowers fall off after awhile making a blanket of yellow/white.

The color contrasts are wonderful. The subject so bright and vibrant with the dark green back ground makes it stand out.

Just lovely, MA. As Bambi said, it's wonderful to see flowers and lush greens as we start to work our way through winter. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks Bambi, Rinkdaddy, Opener and Iggy. :)


Bambi ... Graeme is ok I guess. He's finding he's getting very tired during the day and has a feeling of motion sickness quite. They've discovered a heart murmur as well which may affect his treatment regime.

Very beautiful MA. Sure is nice seeing the colour as compared to what we look out and see this time of year.
