Powderpuff plant

Calliandra emarginata
Originates from tropical America. Plant photographed in West Coast Park. The fruits remind of raspberries that were plucked off the bush next to a golf course in England. Never tasted anything like that because it was free from pesticides and was simply yummy. The powderpuff reference is obvious and needs no explanation. Reminds me of my kids when they were babies because I used to powder them with Johnson Baby Powder each time after I bathe them. I can still recall that feeling of babies fresh and clean. Hmmmmm :-)
