Austr-alien flower!

Whilst the northern hemisphere is experiencing heatwaves, here down under, winter continues on for a little longer (which I confess I enjoy!).  I saw these flowers at the greengrocer on Saturday and was immediately drawn by the incredible red and what seems an almost alien form.  These are Banksia coccinea, and are native to the south coast of Western Australia.   The many forms of different Banksia amaze me with each flower head made up of many individual flowers.
