It’s Still Out: Australian Christmas Bush!

15 Jan

Christmas 2013 has been and gone, but here in Sydney, the bushes that we so often chose for Christmas decoration are hanging onto their cheerful colours.

If I remember correctly, the little red flowers are not flowers at all. They’re bracts. The true flowers precede them, small and insignificant, and are a not very attractive shade of white or cream.

Beside the river, and in our front garden, these mature and charming displays of Christmas cheer are still a vivid reminder of the recent festive season.
