Pohutukawa Blossom

Tomorrow marks the official beginning of summer. And of all the flowering plants, the pohutakawa signals it best. It’s often called the “New Zealand Christmas Tree”.

  2. This is such a different blossom! I have only ever seen them in photos and am always intrigued by them. Happy summer! 🙂
