What a Display! West Australian Red-flowering Gum

West Australian Red- flowering  Gum

Here in Sydney, some varieties of the magnificent West Australian Red-flowering Gum are still in bloom. Lately, I’ve seen several beautiful pink and rose-coloured varieties displaying their lovely flowers.

This particular one, however, has sadly had its day. I’m looking forward to early Summer this year so that, once again, we can all witness its glory. And don’t the Rainbow Lorikeets love them…

    You’ve been disappearing a lot recently Margaret, I hope you’re OK. The gum still looks lovely, such a shame you couldn’t catch a rainbow Lorikeet in there.

      Hi, David. 🙂 Life has been hectic lately, and I’m running low on blogging space here.
      I have actually taken a few shots with the Rainbow Lorikeets in this tree, but they’re in my other camera and I don’t know how to download it. 🙂 A project for another day.
