So we're not seeing this right now.
We're seeing these blooms instead.
Yes, the magnificent Poplar Gums, Eucalyptus platyphylla, are blooming.
My place is surrounded by these enormous Gum trees. Most of them are around 20 metres in height and they will flower from late August into October.
This year, however, one or two have only just started blooming this past week. So bloom time is a slightly late, but it's terrific to see these fluffy little white flowers once again
Although, I have to say, this gal just doesn't seem all that impressed!!!
