The Bottle Brush puts its sparkle on

A little late for the glitter of Christmas but welcoming in a new year, the Bottle Brush flowers have a special sparkle.

      I hadn’t noticed the sparkles before. We have a Pohutukawa tree across the road that has the sparkles too. The other three don’t. The Myrtle family is having a grand flowering time here at the moment.

        No I have no idea about the sparkles. On the Bottle Brush I wonder if there is more pollen on the stamens now the nectar feeding birds have gone elsewhere to feed.
        I am totally in the dark about the Pohutukawa.
