Michelia in full bloom

We know when it's winter and the weather is going to get windier and wetter as this coincides with the flowering of the michelia tree. I just noticed today a significant number of blooms on the tree. I'm not particularly font of the flowers' scent, nor the mess created when all the petals fall to the ground, but with everything attached to the tree it's quite impressive.

Image to the left is of a small part of the tree; each flower is similar in size to your open hand.
