Giant Tree Bloom and Green Crawly for Today's Flowers

Today is Today's Flowers.

Oh I got lost with this one. Fancy I did not record the name of this giant tree that lined the street going to the Government House of NSW that I visited sometime ago.

This lemon yellow flower was hanging from this particular giant tree that caught my attention but didn't bother taking the detail. I have painstakingly tried to study if this flower belongs to the Hill's Weeping Fig (Ficus microcarpa var hillii) using google search, that also lined the opposite side of this avenue where this tree grow but it isn't making any sense because as I macroscopically scrutinized the composition of the leaves of this yellow bloom, it doesn't seem to match with that of the fig tree. I don't know. I don't want to mislead anyone. Maybe someone can help me identify this plant.

[I'll do my homework next time I will go back there. Not this season. Too cold to be gallivanting.]

Eng, I have visited you many times but cannot post comment. Can't see the comment posting box.

The parcel is still here unposted. Magcelebrate ka na lang ng Anni at Birthday - napanis na yata itong ipapadala ko. lol

Thanks for the visit. Yes, it is a caterpillar I reckon. Again, I did not notice it until I posted it here.

Been busy with the grandchild. Two months now. You will see her in my main blog.

Hope your family are well.

Bonnie, this is just for the flowers. No, this is not new. I only changed the skin to make it simpler and easy to see.

Thanks for coming.

Love the angle of this photo. Could that be some type of poppy? It has that paper petal look. It is a stunning photo.

A wonderful capture Bonnie with the caterpillar and the light shining through the petals.

The flower is gorgeous! That caterpillar looks like the elephant's nose! I have not seen this flower before.

Hi Bonnie! It's a beautiful flower. I'm not sure why you can't post on my blog. I'll try to figure it out.

Oh, what a beautiful flower. Its petals remind me of a Japanese lantern!
