Excellent photo, Kelli! The blooms almost look like little young bunches of bananas.

I had to do a bit of research on this one, very interesting plant and has really been used in the research of cancer fighting. Very nice shot of the tree and the flowers are a nice close up Kelli, that tree sure gets tall.
