At Christmas time, so many of you in the land of blog shared pictures of beautiful little bottle brush trees in various shapes, sizes and colors displayed amongst your decorations. In honor of the beginning of Spring, I thought I'd share a picture or two of my bottle brush tree - decorated by its Creator.
For a large part of the day, this tree is literally alive with the sights and sounds of bees buzzing and birds singing and butterflies of all sizes, shapes and colors fluttering through the branches and blossoms. Even the occasional hummingbird comes to feast on its nectar. And when the sun is in just the right spot in the sky, you're likely to see a feisty little black doxie chasing butterfly shadows across the grass beneath the tree. She's too short to chase the butterflies, so she amuses herself for hours chasing their shadows.
