This beautiful tree is in full flower right now down the back of my garden. I planted it nearly six years ago and it is the biggest of all the trees in my yard. It is a Trumpet Tree (Tabebuia chrysantha) and certainly makes a beautiful show every year. However, it also drops its seeds far and wide and I will spend the next few months pulling out seedlings from all around the back yard. I was certainly not told about this when it was recommended to me in a nursery. This photo is taken looking into my neighbour's back yard.
The honeyeaters have been enjoying the flowers too. These photos are of a juvenile Blue-faced Honeyeater. The blue on the face does not develop for some time and this one shows a green/brown color.
