AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes

AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes
I love a sunburnt country / A land of sweeping plains / Of ragged mountain ranges / Of droughts and flooding rains / I love her far horizons / I love her jewel-sea / Her beauty and her terror / The wide brown land for me / ~ Dorothea Mackellar (1885-1968)

Tall coned spikey flames
Like rising searching embers
Floral art of fire

Cool red flowers! I have no idea what type they are but I like them.

These are lovely and your words describe them well. I think they are native flowers to Australia are they? Not sure. :)

Red Hot Pkers are such fun and provide nectar for the Honeyeaters.

Marvelous reds!!! I see this plant in So Cal, but the blossoms are yellow rather than red.
Hugs and blessings,
