I love the way the gum flowers open, like opening a casket to find the treasures. Great shot
So interesting and beautiful.
The comp, DOF and subject make for a gorgeous shot!
Great shot…how tall does it grow…I want one!!!!
Thanks Picketty! The neighbours grafted gum photographed, was planted last year and is still quite small (1m). The information on the growers tag states that the tree will get 3m x 3m due to being grafted, although other information I’ve read varies so it may get taller!
so pretty,,,,,,and a marvelous looking plant!
A stunning capture of a special moment in Creation, Lorraine !!
Wow! This is great! How about the “All about flowers” group?
