Brushing up!


Do my eyes deceive me, or is the bottle brush plant (Callistemon) producing an unusual flower this year?

  3. CK, no they will eventually turn into red flowers that looks a bit like a bottle brush lolol. I don't think Austin's tail will though, unless Tigger catches it!!!!

  9. The black cat my human had many years ago had a very sleek black tail - but when he got spooked, it looked just like a black bottle brush!

  14. Austin, Buddy--will you bloom? Maybe we need more than a brewski, my furiend. Maybe a 'shroom or two.

  19. I do believe there's a bit of a "dark bloom" there on that bottle brush plant - adds a nice touch I think! :D

  22. Austin, that bottle brush plant makes a great place to hide for a sneak attack. We like your "Brushy" tail as a flower as well. Purrs and hugs from the kitties at The Cat on My Head, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Josette

  24. I don't see a sign that says, "Please don't pick the flowers." That could be bad.
