New Zealand’s Majestic Pohutukawa Tree

In preparation for my daughters school United Nations Day food festival and the New Zealand stand, we are putting together a slide show with the theme of New Zealand native trees and supporting Project Crimson a charity organisation dedicated to planting Pohutukawa or Rata trees, which is greatly supported by Ata Rangi vineyard with proprietor and tree lover, Clive Paton, very much involved. Ata Rangi have sent me some pictures including this amazing image of a majestic and dazzlingly coloured Pohutukawa tree; an awe-inspiring illustration of New Zealand’s unique natural beauty.
