A Touch of Red 2 of 4

Eucalyptus flower with a peek of the beach in the background.


  1. And what a beautiful shade of red ..... It looks great against the soft background.
    Wishing you a wonderful and safe 2013 with lots of photo opportunities.

  2. I saw one of these trees in bloom yesterday too. They're certainly lovely.

  3. Ah, this is how a Eucalyptus flower looks like ... nice.

    1. Martina, there are over 700 varieties of eucalyptus. While this flower is the typical shape most in our part of Australia have fairly inconspicuous white or cream flowers. This is probably a variety from South or Western Australia.

  4. All the flowering gums round our way are coming out now - all that RED nd green is just like Xmas!!

  5. Gorgeous blooms! Another endemic species I suppose.

The filmy veil of greenness

We crossed the border into Victoria cruising down a lovely timbered road before breaking into the rich dairy country of Gippsland. It is wonderful to see the land green after more than 10 years of very dry weather. But most of the state of Victoria is still drought declared.

The Pasture by Robert Frost
"I'm going out to clean the pasture spring;
I'll only stop to rake the leaves away
(And wait to watch the water clear, I may):
I sha'n't be gone long. You come too.

I'm going out to fetch the little calf
That's standing by the mother. It's so young,
It totters when she licks it with her tongue.
I sha'n't be gone long. You come too."

The end

I retire from the workforce this week and to celebrate have decided to retire my current blogs and start afresh with a single consolidated blog - My Bright Field - to record the delights of my new life adventure.
If you are interested follow me over there.  I will still be Sweet Wayfaring and collecting Royal Hotels.  The delights I discover along the way will appear together with my gardens and towns where I live.
