Beautiful golden native kōwhai flowers outside the RSA today. Appears to be a deciduous form, that’s what caught my eye first about a week ago – all these flowers and no leaves! We’ve had a few wintry days but it’s still looking gorgeous. Tapanui, West Otago, New Zealand.

Dense clusters of flowers!
