Letters from America

There is a street tree that I like very much called Brush Box. It is originally a rainforest tree but it is planted a lot by local councils and so now it flourishes in the suburbs. This is a photo I pinched from Google and I think it’s a street somewhere in the inner West.
The Brush Box trees are in flower now. Here is a close up I took of the blossom. There are five rounded petals similar to a tea tree blossom and then there are five delicate fronds for stamens that extend out way beyond the petals like starfish arms.
