All Gummed Up

Aren't they just the most magnificent flower?
At this time of year they are in full bloom all over town.
It's a flowering gum - they come in pinks, reds, oranges and creams.
The bees love them.

Outside Shire Hall, Barkly St, Ararat - Jan, 2008


  1. For a fraction of a moment I felt myself falling into deep warm summer. Wonderful. Thank you! :-)

  2. Those are beautiful.
    Thanks for sharing.

  3. The bee butt is sticking out! he can't leave the flower!

  4. Brilliant!
    Do they make gum out of them? Chewing gum, eraser gum, sweet gum ;-)

  5. MERISI - it's cold today! Big floods in Queensland and flash flooding in NSW. I think it will only be about 20C today (not really THAT cold, but in comparison to the 40C days we had last month - heaven.)

    M.R. - Nature never ceases to amaze me - it's so clever!

    G MIRAGE - I like that! A bee butt!

    ISABELLA - I believe they make gummy bears (otherwise known as Koalas) from gum trees.

  6. You are too cruel!! And tempting me with another pink to swoon over.
