Flowering Trees

It POURED rain last night and so this morning as the sun came peeking through the trees I zipped outside to snap a couple of photos.

The first tree is a “bottle brush” tree. It is one the hummingbirds just love – bright red, and the blooms do look like bottle brushes!

This one is a huge tree and has blossoms that look like orchids to me. I haven’t been able to find out the name of the tree, but if anyone knows, please let me know.

    Marsha – this bottle brush tree is really strangely beautiful- I have never seen anything like it – is it native to California?

    Wow! I especially love the tree. I cant see the flower well enough but it might be a magnolia tree. I saw some like this in Malaysia. If you can do a bigger photo of just the flower, maybe I can tell you.
