Cycles in the Wood

Cycles in the Wood

Some time ago I posted some melaleucas and things that held their old pods on the tree, which then reflowers from new ones. Here is more, a different variety, shown in the flower in autumn. I couldn’t help thinking it was interesting to see the transformation happening in the Woods, yet again.

  1. Those are really interesting, flowering in the autumn like that. The flowers are neat, too.
