A week ago when we walked out of town and up the road through farmland, taking photos of trees with bare branches, I’d noticed how beautiful the bronze-coloured flaxes were looking. Most side-of-the-road flaxes are green but sometimes we see brown or bronze flaxes, and occasionally variegated forms. This one, with a few similar companions, were in a minority with the rest of the group being the usual green. Phormium species. Tapanui, West Otago, New Zealand.
