A Wonderful Sight – West Australian Red-Flowering Gums!

6 Dec

Margaret's Classic Posts

2014_0109imagefacebook0089One of my very favourite Australian native trees is now in flower! Iโ€™m speaking of the West Australian Red-flowering Gum.

Although Sydney, N.S.W., is not their original home, these delightful plants have adapted perfectly to this environment, and right now there is a wonderful assortment of colours (all in shades of red) in flower.

Here is one of the brightest, growing in a garden near to our home.

Enjoy!

    This is lovely. I very much appreciated the beautiful color in this Christmas Season. It also gave a lift to the bare, grey day in Montreal right now. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I am flying to Perth tomorrow – I hope I get up close and personal with one of those trees!

      I’d love to know if they’re any more spectacular in their homeland… ๐Ÿ™‚
