I am still collecting my flowers, usually on my Sunday walk. Then I put them in a vase to look at during the week. This week I made an error. What I thought was a feral flower was actually a native. The bushes were growing along the edge of a tidal stream that runs at the back of the main beach. I have never seen these in flower before and I think this is how I made the mistake plus the flowers looked to beautiful to be growing on a native bush growing in among the mangroves.
The flowers are a creamy white with very long stamens and the bushes are called 'River Mangroves".
The creek only really runs when there has been heavy rain and then fills up at the high tide with sea water.
They make a lovely display and I got quite carried away looking at them. Then I looked up and decided to move away, quickly.
There were fallen coconuts everywhere on the ground and lots of those up there look ready to come down, soon.
