I had the chance to sample fallen dried leaves of Eucalyptus Eximia, the yellow bloodwood. Such spectacular bark!
Needless to say, I didn’t pass up the opportunity!

Just for your viewing pleasure–some more of the glorious native Australian plants at Wittunga Botanical Gardens–
These are banksias at their splendid best.
