Corymbia ptychocarpa - Spring Bloodwood, Swamp Bloodwood

When I find the time I will upload photos of Cantonese Opera costumes and head gears that I had photographed in a museum in Hong Kong. This tree at the Hortpark is ready to burst into blooms. At present there are only two clusters of pink flowers. This one in particular remind me of the elaborate sequined costumes of Cantonese Opera.
