I like to share things …
from my part of the world.
Perhaps things you are not likely to see in your part of the world.
As I was going to pick up the boy from work today, I noticed some bright vibrant blooms on a tree, so on the way home, I asked the ‘learner driver’ to pull over so I could take some photos.
This is the Golden Penda.
It is supposed to be the floral emblem of Cairns.
(I didn’t know that until I did some research today)
The botanical name for the Golden Penda is Xanthostemon chrysanthus.
