Day 7 - Pohutukawa flower

Here's a pohutukawa flower to match the iris I did. So now there are two glass coasters. :-)

Pohutukawa flower

I love pohutukawas. They're coastal trees which start to bloom in December: the earlier, the hotter the summer will be. Some people call them the New Zealand Christmas tree because of the timing and the brilliant red blooms. there's even a steel sculpture of a flower where the southern and western motorways start in Auckland, the ends of which which light up at night. :-)

As LJ-hosted pictures aren't always showing up properly (just as a strip or very pixellated), I also have it on Flickr.

My NaArMaMo 2011 Gallery is here; go up a level for the others.

Also posted on Dreamwidth, with comments.
