I can't believe how well my little Panasonic Lumix has captured the colour and detail of this poinciana bloom. I've been experimenting with the Macro and flash settings and am quietly pleased with the results. If you look closely you can even see a couple of little bush bees stopping by for a drink of nectar!
Just look at the colour of this Bangkok Rose. The actual flower is that tiny little yellow thing in the middle. The rest of it is made up of these gorgeous dusty pink bracts. I have a number of these beautiful shrubs in my garden - one in the softest, palest pink and another a crisp, clean white. The contrast is just stunning.
The cute little Sunee alamandas with their striking yellow flowers and glossy green leaves just look so cheerful. They always make me smile.
Mother Nature never ceases to amaze me. How about this for an incredible colour combination.
