I took this photo at the Australian Springtime Flora Festival at Mount Penang, near Gosford. It is held in the middle of September each year and is spectacular - go if you get the chance. This spectacular Waratah was in the Native Flowers hall where local flower arrangers display their talents. Unfortunately flower arranging has never been one of my talents so I have to just admire others.
