Fresh tropical charm

Callistemon flower growing

My attempt at growing a Callistemon (Australian bottle brush) tree on the Cote d’Azur is going really well :) It’s a very easy plant to take care of and it is gonna bring a touch of tropics into your home :) Also, if you’re into macro photography it is clearly a very good looking subject, like mother nature’s version of fireworks :)

Mon tentative de faire pousser un petit arbre de Callistemon (bizarrement appelé aussi “rince-bouteille” d’Australie) sur la Côte d’Azur est en train d’être un succès :) C’est très facile de prendre soin de cette plante, qui va apporter une touche de tropique chez vous :) D’ailleurs, si vous êtes passionnés de photographie macro, elle pourra devenir un sujet assez intéressant pour vos clichés. C’est un peu comme des feux d’artifice version nature, je trouve :)

Loving Nature: Araliya beauty

White frangipani blooms

Call them frangipani, plumeria or araliya…. they are just the best to me :) Which ones do you prefer, the pink or the white version? Enjoy the pics xx
