Conventional Wisdom

 

Many people do not take a second look when driving past our eucalyptus trees.

make a wonderful addition to our landscape.

Cypress pines can also be tall and stately.

However these trees are anything but that,

reflecting many years of strong onshore winds.

A tree which could be ignored has a story to tell.

I think our eucalypts make

wonderful living sculptures.

  1. Is it just me or are eucalypts especially beautiful to touch as well, compared to other trees. The bark is often so smooth and rich with patterns. Like fingerprints, each seems to have original markings. Thanks for your reminder
