I've been away in Tasmania which is why I've not posted anything for a while. Still sorting out photos and recovering from a cold since I returned.
This very pretty flower is called guara and is also known as the butterfly bush, so became a candidate for my Animal Crackers thread (although I've posted about it before but didn't know about that nickname then). I have turned the photo on the right upside down which I think shows exactly why it earned the nickname.
All the examples in my area are very scrappy at the moment so when I saw this glorious example in Hobart, I couldn't help but take a snap for the blog. Imagine the flowers fluttering in a breeze like it's covered in butterflies.
