Yesterday I walked through the Queen’s Lake Park in Moonee Ponds, a suburb of Melbourne, Australia. Three trees caught my attention for various reasons.
The first, for the texture of the bark.
The second tree is a Red Flowering Gum, Corymbia ficifolia, and it was the base of the tree with its root system above the ground that I found interesting.
The third tree had been planted in memory of an Australian icon James Lesley (Les) Darcy (1895-1917), boxer and folk hero. While he was a middleweight boxer , he held the Australian Heavyweight Championship title at the same time.
