Ok, that’s not really fair. It is not another festival. It’s just the bottle brush (Callistemon) tree in our yard. I’ve been noticing all the little red bristly flower parts accumulating in the cracks in the brick sidewalk, and decided to take a photo today.
And the ones that are opening more.
And the gorgeous ones all the way open, making the reason for the name “bottle brush” completely clear.
This plant is native to Australia, but it’s very happy in our yard in New Orleans!
