New England's beauties - A bottlebrush (Calistemon sp.) in flower














Just an end month photo from Gordon Smith.

Many of New England's beauties are subtle. Gordon wrote:

A bottlebrush (Calistemon sp.) in flower outside our house. I had to desaturate this photograph a little - the flower is so colourful.

This may not sound subtle, but this is not a very big flower. Walking through the bush, you have to look to see!

I had never seen this flower. Very different and charming ... And the picture, I bet that is very fragrant.

You known, Cintia, I cannot answer that question re fragrance. I just don't know!
