First blooms

I liberated this native kowhai tree seedling from a life in a cold dark gulley and planted it on a reasonably sunny slope in Miramar.
It's been looked after as badly as the rest of the trees around it, but despite that, after about 4 years it's finally flowered for the first time. Not many blooms and much later than most, but great to see these intense yellow flowers.
The shot was given a few tweaks with the app Snapseed.
