wonderfully sharp on the subject flower, .... what's the flower it's very nice. (looks a little like white bottle brush - which I didn't know existed until I stumbled across one a few weeks back)
cheers

I'm not sure of the name either but the flowers are like the New Zealand Christmas Tree but are white instead of being Red.

Might be Myrtus communis, "true myrtle", which is a distant relative of bottlebrush. Whatever it is, the image is beautiful! TFS

Your flowers are terrific! And they just keep coming! Need to collect them all into a coffee table book for waiting rooms and such! Perhaps link up with some starving poet to add some thought provoking pros to enhance the experience! Great photography!

Or you could just keep enjoying what you're going....My wife and I sure like view them on my iPad!

Annie has been perplexed with what flower it is and she thinks it might be a boab tree flower.

All just practice and I noticed you are producing some very fine shots too.
