Photo a Day 61 - Flowers

More Australian native flowers today for Floral Friday Fotos  and Today's Flowers..

This first one is a bottlebrush - the common name for several species including Callistemon . This one is Callistemon pallidus.

This little daisy is an Olearia, but I am not sure which of the 100 plus varieties it is. It is very hardy and easy to grow - hard to kill in fact. Grows to about 2 metres.

This beauty is one of our flowering Eucalyptus trees. They come in a range of glorious colours from cream through pink, orange, scarlet and crimson. The trees are long lived and grow to 30 metres. The one in our garden was a large tree when we moved in 43 years ago.

The trees in full flower are quite spectacular.
