Cobbled together while taking a break on Waiheke, it seems there is some pent up need for a pohutukawa post.
You may have heard about the six Pohutukawa that are under threat to make way for a hyperspace bypass [sic], and in their honour, and just because they do seem to be particularly beautiful this year, here's a kick start for sharing your best pohutukawa shots.
We're not fussy about varieties either. Well, I'm not, as my favourite and most photographed tree in our front yard is a Kermadec.
Happy New Year.
