47/366: bottlebrush beauty

In our garden we have a lovely native dark red Callistemon, which gets its common name due to the flowers looking like a bottlebrush.

I love the way it frames the path as you walk around the corner.

One of my favourite things in the garden is to create interesting corners and having surprises appear as you walk around them. In this case there is a Colebrookdale chair on one side of the Golden Diosma, and in the distance is a concrete ornament known as the Curtsy Girl.
