These tall bottle-brush like flowers growing along tall thin stems have been popping up in my back garden, from seeds sown in spring by my daughter. As these are tall and sway a lot in the wind, I have not really had a chance to take photos of it. But I took the opportunity while shooting the IDS2e video, when the wind was calm to photograph this flower as well.
