At the moment these rather scraggly looking trees out in the bushland are pretty much all in bloom. The tree itself is not much to look at and while it has these peculiarly beautiful flowers ... you will only see them during the late afternoons into the evenings because the whole bloom drops before the next morning ... so only those in the know will get to see them up close.
Please do drop by and visit my other blog: My Dry Tropics Garden ... it provides a more informative look at what's going on in my garden out in the bush.

A bush stroll to see a peculiar flower.
Took a stroll out into the bush yesterday evening so I could get a closer look at all the Cocky Apples (Planchonia careya) in bloom. These are fascinating trees ... native to northern Australia and my region has the largest concentration of them in their native habitat.
