Flower bud on Oakley Creek
First
Just four days later after the first flower's apperarance, with the addition of some sun-shower drops this particular morning, we got this show. (20Sep2015, Auckland)
Have had this (now) 2m+ high tree since it was a wee thing for about 4-5 years now. Still filling out, but it has height! Definitely likes the rubbish soil in this exposed spot in our front-garden.
