These Tasmanian Christmas Bells were discovered in flower in South Bruny National Park, just a few short months after bushfires had raged through the area and left plant life blackened.
Usually the strappy leaves of this plant have a rather scraggy and rough, worn and torn appearance. However, appearing shortly after the fire and before the wild weather had a chance to tear at them, these were in amazing and almost perfect condition - a rare and wonderful sight.
