The Kiwi Christmas tree – Pohutukawa – captured at the end of the rainbow! A double rainbow even! A very pretty sight from my own back yard.

Welcome to RedBubble (Dale?). You trying to make me homesick?
You’re right! That is very similar to the one I took here in the USA. I’ve never seen a Pohutukawa before, what a wonderful color. I love how it looks in front of the rainbows!
Yeah, pretty huh. These trees are everywhere in NZ and regarded as a national treasure. A lot of them on residential properties are “protected” by the government and are not allowed to be cut down or even trimmed and occasionally are a nightmare for people when the roots invade the plumbing!! Regardless, they are beautiful and flower in our summer hence known as the NZ christmas tree (although we do have the traditional pine christmas trees in our houses). he red flowers are like puffs of thousands of fine red threads with tiny heads and end up all over the ground.
