This morning we woke up in the clouds so I decided to get in the car and head down to the valley floor, looking for a scene of the sun piercing the mist. About an hour and 40km later I hadn’t found what I was looking for and headed home to find this.
This giant yellow box tree (Eucalyptus melliodora) is about 10 metres from our front door and about 30 metres high. It probably started to grow in this spot before the first fleet pulled into Botany Bay.
