Beautiful flowers given their name due to their strange furry petals.

I think the buds are nearly as beautiful as the flower.

These flowers are very rare to see in the wild. They require rainfall a year after bushfire to germinate. Believed to be a once in a lifetime event to see them in a given location.

After visiting Sydney for the first time since Covid hit I was shocked to see the new skyline in Darling Harbour. Perhaps living under a rock in Bathurst, I was not expecting to see this at all. It made the news today after being denied it's licence to operate as a casino but I am still struck by its 'beauty' and its contrast to the many buildings around it. Apparently I was not the only one; it was fascinating to see how many people were walking down Darling Harbour with their heads up almost mesmerized by their changed surroundings. Controversy aside how do you like the look of this building?
