Photos from my walk this morning. The little gum tree near our side yard has just started its flowering with the prettiest gum blossom I’ve ever seen. The colour is so subtle, shades of pink and yellow with the white. I’ve used part of the first photo in my new header.
You can see how the blossom unfurls from the gumnuts, after pushing off the cap.
This is what the empty gum nuts will look in future … you wouldn’t think it was the same tree. Some type of bug infestation or disease is causing blistered leaves.
Another? The bee looks to be hanging on tight. The wind was blowing the blossom about. It’s cloudy again today, maybe will reach 25-27C.
If you are trying to recall the old header. It was something like this. 😀
