Pohutukawa Tree, New Zealand

Pohutukawa Tree, New Zealand, originally uploaded by CarolinaRen.

I fell in love with one artist's representation of the Pohutukawa flowers, although I did not buy the piece -- maybe next time! From the back: "Growing profusely around the North Island's north-eastern coastline, the pohutukawa presents a blaze of colour during the Christmas period when its rich, red blooms are usually at the showiest. It is sometimes called the New Zealand Christmas tree."
