It seems as if its lit from inside by a red bulb. I wonder if that's where they get the ideas for fibre optic flowers.

That's exactly what they look like, isn't it? I just find them so interesting.

Hi Floralhead ... yes this small tree is a native of my area of norhtern Oz. It has never been developed for nursery sales so the only place you will see it is in the bushland in only a few spots across the top of Australia. I'm lucky enough to be surrounded by these ... they're very common in the bushland around my home.

Thanks Margeurite ... I ventured out into the bushland to get these shots. Of course as the flowers only open in the early evening I was attached by march flies and other nasties that were flying around at that time of day!
