Note to self - must do a photography course ... soon!

I have been trying to get a decent photo of this beauty for days, and this is as good as I'm going to get.

It is a flower from our Cape Chestnut tree (Calodendrum capense), native to South Africa evidently. Very pretty. For my local friends, there is a stunning specimen of this tree in the front garden of The Abbey.
