2014_0109imagefacebook0089One of my very favourite Australian native trees is now in flower! I’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.

Still Delightful: West Australian Red Flowering Gums!

6 Jan

I’m delighted every morning to see that these beautiful natives are still in bloom. I know that some of the earlier-flowering ones are past their prime, yet there are still quite a few beautiful specimens near our home.

What rich and vibrant colours! What stunning forms!

They’re out! Western Australian Red-flowering Gums!

In Sydney,this is the just the start of their glorious season…

Sadly, it’s a fairly short time…but nevertheless, absolutely glorious!

This photo was taken in a neighbour’s garden.

There’s even a few planted locally as street trees. What wonderful specimens!

With luck, I will gather more images as time goes by…
