I love Spring in our garden, so many interesting, colourful and architectural plants are in bloom, including this bottle brush, also known as Callistemon. We planted this bush several years ago and this is the first year it has really bloomed. It is covered in tiny seed pods, just waiting to burst open. I cut…
