Red: Flame trees, Mapleton

The flame trees are looking wonderful next to the Mapleton Public House (terrible name - wish the new owners had left it as the Mapleton Tavern). I was filling in time between picking up a prescription and going to the doctor for my 6 months injection for osteoporosis. When I did get there I was told I was 10 days to early - despite the surgery sending me a reminder notice - twice! My injection will need to wait in their fridge!
Wow stunning..

I always start singing Cold Chisel's 'Flame Trees' when I see them, with its opening chorus line 'Oh the flame trees will blind the weary driver'. Your photo really captures their blinding colour! Favourite

@julzmaioro @ankers70 @ludwigsdiana @annied @30pics4jackiesdiamond @marlboromaam @boxplayer Thank you for your comments on the flame trees. At the moment the Jacarandas are dropping purple flowers as well so the landscape around here is looking very pretty.
