Hmmm, Interesting! A hair brush?
Getting warmer yet?
There you go – complete with little Mr Spaghetti Legs, who just happened to be sauntering by when I took the photo. The tree does not usually have these large yellow brushes on it; just once a year in Spring.
What is it? Well, I call it a Silver Oak, though I have been assured by someone that it is not! However, according to google, I’m right! It is an Australian Silver Oak, also known as a Southern Silky Oak, scientific name, Grevillea Robusta.
post script: The answer to Wednesday’s movie trivia:-
“Ding Dong! The bells are gonna chime” is from the song “Get me to the church on time”, composed by Frederick Loewe, with lyrics by Alan Jay Lerner. Performed by Stanley Holloway, playing Alfred P. Doolittle, a dustman, and Eliza Doolittle’s father, in the musical “My Fair Lady” 1956.
Thank you to all who participated. Mistermuse gave the most complete answer, while Quiall and Ladysighs also knew the song and movie. Points all round!
