The Pohutakawa tree is a harbinger of a long hot summer if the flowering occurs before Christmas. This Summer has been a odd one with trees next to each other flowering weeks apart.

This one is on the Petone foreshore alongside the carpark area. Taken on a manual setting to get the vivid red of the flowers and the shadows against the bright sunshine which was bringing lots of people to the beach.
