Cee’s Flower of the Day – August 16, 2019: The Bottle Brush

The Bottle Brush Tree is native to Australia.

The Bottlebrush is known as the essence of the Kookaburra, it holds abundance, laughter, and joy just like the bird itself. The flowers of the bottlebrush are used to celebrate birth and all that’s new.

Bright red floral brushes, are the color of our life-blood, the color of passion and love, blooming after rain they represent fertility and love.
