Joyous Red and Christmas Time…

West Australian Red-flowering Gums
West Australian Red-flowering Gums

The colour red has become strongly associated with Christmas. Here in Australia, the traditional Christmas Bush is a rusty-red, and of course, Santa is always dressed in red…

So how fortunate it is that these magnificent West Australian Red-flowering Gums bloom at this time of year. Right now, where I live (in suburban Sydney, Australia), they are at their peak, and don’t the Rainbow Lorikeets love them?

So here’s another photo of these glorious flowers.

Merry Christmas!

I studied Short Story Writing and Freelance Journalism for a total of five years when I was younger, but it's only lately that I've tried to make a go of it as a professional. I have written eleven books now, all published by Amazon Kindle, and most also published as paperbacks by Createspace and available on the Amazon web-site. Several Sydney libraries have copies of some volumes, and they are currently on loan.My books are all listed by Goodreads. The total number of ratings of my titles there is in excess of 80, with an average of 4.4 stars. I am happily married to Ronald Sharp, the creator of the Grand Organ in the Concert Hall of the Sydney Opera House. He has consistently encouraged me to write, and has spent much time in editing, compiling, and designing the covers of each book. I'm keen on swimming, love animals, and appreciate good music and art.
