Saturday Snapshots #12

2007 Bottlebrush

Bottlebrush flower, Johannesburg 2007

Bottlebrush plants (named for the distinctive shape of their flowers) are native to Australia but are very happy in South Africa where they adorn road verges and gardens.  They range in size from ground-hugging shrubs to trees of 10m or more and are members of the Myrtle family.  This one lives in a friend's garden in Johannesburg and was at the height of its flowering cycle when I visited just over a year ago. 

This is part of a series of non-food photographs that will be published every Saturday on CookSister. Click here for a full list of photographs previously featured.

    You must know that I think you’re a remarkable photographer, but do you know how much I appreciate these pics??? It grows on one – just have to pop in to come and have a look at your photograph, even when I’m not home.
