the photos are all a bit less than wonderful as it was poor light.
however there were lots of tree trunks shedding interesting bark.
lots of burned out trunks from fires a few years ago.
a pretty flower that is a noxious weed in most of the state.
has several names but i know it as "Pattersons Curse"
ant nest looks like it is ready for rain
the last bottle brush flower i could find anywhere....
and it is only part of a flower anyway
even the jacaranda wasnt that good
we have had a lot of rain and it seems to
have made a lot of flower loss and foliage growth instead
