Bottle Brush Tree and Little Birdies. Happy Spring


Today, my Bottle Brush tree was home to a few little birdies. I hope it blooms this year as beautiful as it has in the past. It's really getting tall and I don't want to trim it. Or do you have to? Happy Spring everyone!
See the little birdie peeking it's head out. :-) I wish I could have captured it better.

    We have a lot of these in Australia. They come in other colours now and we have a mauve mist one in our front flower bed as well as some red ones. There are so many varieties to suit how tall/big you need them to grow. Some are more like shrubs, whilst others reach tree like proportions. Enjoy!
