Banksia by Drowsey Monkey of Mellow Yellow Monday
Meme: Mellow Yellow Monday Description: Because life is better with a splash of yellow Creator: Drowsey Monkey Origin: Ontario, Canada
I love this photo, my cousin took it in Coffs Harbour, NSW Australia. The plant is called a Banksia.
Banksia is one of our native flora. It withstands and outlasts the aridity of the climate here and doesn't need much maintenance. You plant and forget and blooms are as copious as the stars in the night. Very generous blooming shrubs and trees they are.
