I found an unusual looking eucalypt in bloom on my favourite running track. Which means I had no camera and no bag with me. This is a small dried sample… The tree has a lovely bronze, smooth trunk, with bark peeling in strips. Euclid isn’t speaking to me at present but perhaps later identification will be possible with those wonderful red flowers!
There is a smudge of red among the orange leaf prints these leaves gave…
This is my second unidentified eucalypt. It was growing in Botanic Park when I rode through recently. It had been raining and this extremely tall tree had lost some twigs, leaves, buds and flowers. Sadly, no one had given it a name tag for my edification… but it seemed an opportunity too good to miss.
Or on the other hand… further evidence that there are Eucalypts which give very little colour!
