The Kiwi Christmas tree is up

Pohutukawa no silver

On my Thursday morning walk along the waterfront, I spotted one of the first Pohutukawa trees to flower.

This Kiwi “Christmas tree” is loved for its crimson flower that only appears during the summer months. For me, the first flowers mark the beginning of the festive season and as I have about 3 parties in the next week it seems mother nature is right on time.
