The flower is beautiful! You will have to get a photo of that tree when it is in full bloom.

Karen said...

Gorgious foliage on the tree!

Shirley said...

This tree is appropriately named! Each blossom mimicking a flame in colour and its form. Do the flowers wilt away when the tree comes into leaf?

The blossoms are so gorgeous!

Perfect name for the red-orange flower- it look like a flame.
Love the Wattlebird- I've not seen one before.

Dianne said...

Sunshine freedom and a little flower .... beautiful!

Carole M. said...

enjoyed everyone's comments; the red sure does add a zing. Barb' I will go back and try for photos when all the flowers are happening. Shirley: I expect the leaves replace the depleting flowers

Gorgeous blooms, Carole! Love the Wattlebird! You certainly have some very interesting species in Australia.

Seeing the coral tree always makes me smile, my daughter when she was little always said they were little fires and wouldn't walk on the ground if there were fallen flowers so she had to be carried over them, glad she got over it she is much bigger now.

Wow, that Coral Tree is something special! Judging by the honeyeaters drawn to it, I'm assuming it's a native? If so, it should replace all the Jacarandas used as ornamentals here in Brisbane - beautiful trees but barren of wildlife!

Jan Castle said...

Is the Coral Tree native to Australia? I saw something similar in Ventura, CA but did not know the name. Certainly a lovely tree - no wonder the birds like it!
Hugs,
Jan

Notation: When I started this post I mistakenly titled the post as Illawarra Flame tree; which it isn't. My long-time email friend in Northern N.S.W. reminded me of this. Tks to Margaret; I'd come back and changed the post-title to Coral Tree etc.

Jan: No, the coral tree isn't a native to Australia; I've learnt online that it is the official floral emblem in Venezuela!

I've always wondered what those trees are. Now I know!
Lovely series, Carole!
