W for "Weeping Bottlebrush"

Weeping Bottlebrush back home. Check out the pretty bird perched on it.

Common Name: Weeping Bottlebrush, Drooping Bottlebrush, Red Bottlebrush, Red Cascade
Scientific Name:Callistemon viminalis/Melaleuca viminalis

As a kid, I found the Weeping Bottlebrush flower very interesting because of its look. Yes, it looks like a bottle-brush and hence the name.
Back home, Deta planted this tree on the banks of the pond and now it overlooks the pond and the bamboo bridge across it.
