Bottlebrush ~ Australian Native Flora Photography Print ~ Red Floral Wall Art by Nadia Culph
' Come October.
The bright flush streaks nature strips.
Vivid blobs dot neighbourhoods.
Dazzling blooms take me back thirty years to you,
harnessed in your pusher, face upturned,
eyes focused on streets of flitting trees,
branches buzzing, oozing pollen,
dripping clusters of red, bright as blood.
Grabbing at a branch,
you held the filaments of colour so gently
it might have been a small creature.
Stamens stroked your palm,
brushed your cheek.
A red Bottlebrush calling us to witness –
a Callistemon and a child
demonstrating the value of show don’t tell. ' - EA Gleeson
Perfectly timed for the festive season, beautiful red Bottlebrush flowers adorn Australian neighbourhoods attracting local bird and insect life.
