As promised, here are some photos of our Banksia tree in flower which has bloomed this winter right on cue. As suspected, the flowers are medium sized and yellow and are already attracting birds to sip on the nectar. We gave this a light pruning about a month ago and that doesn't seemed to have bothered it. We'll be keeping this tree, although some of the others like the Geisha Girl have to go to make room for things more productive, like a lemon tree which is our number one wish!
