The Flowering Gum

I saw these flowers yesterday in a florist window and I had to go in and photograph them, they just looked so stunning.
The Flowering Gum.
I love the way they pop off their cap and unfurl from a hard case in beauty and colour. My heart finds resonance with this too.
In a time when the news contains increasing reports of violence my stand, as a woman, and as a mother, is to continue to focus on what is beautiful in life and in that way endeavour to nurture the type of world I want my children to grow up in snd become caretakers too.
