Lipstick anyone?

Well, the sun shines down and with it brings the budding of a tree overhanging our fence. I don't know the name of this flower, but I call it the lipstick tree, because just before the bloom opens, the flower looks like a tube of lipstick sitting
there with the red lipstick on the top. It then opens to this gorgeous orange blossom. The tree or bush is smothered in these little spectacles and the next few
days are going to bring them all out to their glory.
