While working hard in the new garden, there is always time to observe nature in the new area. This is a beautiful tree, the Brachychiton acerifolius, also commonly known as Illawarra Flame Tree. Some days ago was totally covered by flowers, gorgeous coral color bells pending from the branches; now the tree is full green leaves, but for some days they the tree was a real jewel!
The picture, taken with the phone, does not show the real beauty. The tree is a native of Australia from the familiy of malvacea, and are doing very well in the hot summer of the Mediterranean. I have seen in some parks a family of trees together with jacarandas: fantastic combination of colors!
