Floral moodboard - jan/feb



I'm joining in with Karin and Asa with a January/February garden moodboard.
 I suppose I'm cheating a bit as this beautiful tree isn't growing in my garden, though I can clearly see it from my backyard.
It is a Red Flowering Gum, Corymbia ficifolia also known as Albany red flowering gum, and previously known as Eucalyptus ficifolia. Confused? Isn't it beautiful though.  I adore the way it shows it's buds at the same time as open blossom and the big gumnuts.
I have many more pics which I think I will share next time.
Thanks for dropping by!
