Fireworks in a vase

If ever there was a flower which resembled fireworks, it would have to be Australia's flowering gum.  The tree on the front verge is producing these remarkable flowers.

Each perfect red stamen is topped with a little ball of yellow and they look just like fireworks exploding in the night sky.

This one reminds me of twinkling fairy lights.

The perfection of nature never ceases to astound.
