For Weekend Reflections here is a quite new office building with its Hebrew name, Migdal Dona, reflected in mirror image.
It has a nice elliptical shape, eh?
It stands in the far-western Givat Shaul neighborhood of Jerusalem.
Here it is as seen from a 3rd floor window in Beit Hakerem.
I had to stick my arm out through the bars of a window, point and shoot, and hope for the best.
Actually it was the tree I was after, with its spiky orange-colored flowers and compound fern-like leaves.
This is the only one of its kind I've ever seen.
Anyone know what kind it is?
(Other interesting things in Givat Shaul are in three earlier posts.)
UPDATE: I believe Diane in Australia has solved the mystery!
The tree seems to be a silky oak (or silk oak), Grevillea robusta, a member of the Protea family, a native to Australia.
Nice photo of the unusual flowers here.
