It is a pohutukawa, which is indigenous to New Zealand, that is just starting to flower.

I like that there's different stages of bloom in the one shot!

So nice to visit a new friend again. I shall not only peek, but to leave behind a series of footprints.

Its a great feeling to associate Nature with Christmas and to be reminded of it on a daily basis.
