This weeks prompt is: INSPIRATION

New Zealand Christmas tree

On my daily walks, just after New Year, I discovered this NZ Christmas tree. It’s the first time I’ve seen it with my own eyes. I was inspired by the look and beauty of the”bush” and its bright red blooms. It gave me INSPIRATION to know that nature is still thriving.

Does anyone know if this is a Rata or Pohutukawa “bush”?
