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.

We were having a coffee at the bakery and I noticed a sign on a hotel saying it was a Cobb and Co coach stop.  That got me wondering if there was a hidden Royal Hotel in the town.  A quick google revealed not that hotel but this derelict one as the former Royal.
