Christmas crimson - pohutukawa flowers

What a sight!  Looking up at the profuse display on a tree that was in full tilt bloom on Christmas Day, the bright side lighting emphasising the texture of the thousands and thousands of red stamens with their little golden tips of pollen.  Every which way you look right now there seems to be another display of rich reds, scarlets or crimsons, catching the light and lighting up the rather greyer days that have followed the record setting sunshine of Christmas Day.
