Banksia rose

0708 banksia rose

As the mornings get lighter and the days warmer (although it's still cooling down at night) the signs of spring are there in the neighbourhood. Fresh growth on the tips of pine trees, magnolias in bloom, blossom trees carpeting the ground with fallen petals and the jacaranda foliage yellowing and preparing to fall ahead of their purple glory in October/November. And banksia roses rioting over fences with generous heads of flowers.
