The Pohutukawa tree in NZ flowers in November/December (early summer here) they grow into magnificent huge trees. I have planted approximately 25 of these trees on our property, and always feel the warmth of summer when they begin to flower in early November where I live near the beach. This is my own stylised design of the Pohutukawa flower and includes some beadwork which maybe hard to see on the photo. This piece measures 1m x 1m and also won first in the 'Multi Media' section of the WAX (Womens Art Exhibition) in 2007. I loved designing and working on this and went onto make another 2 wall quilts along similar lines- one has sold and the other has been selected to travel to France with a collection of NZ Quilts.
