Last year was one of our wettest winters for many years. After a decade of drought, it seemed as though Mother Nature was trying to making amends in just one winter. In my part of Australia winter is the wettest part of the year. However, as winter continued it appeared as though the rain was not going to stop.
When winter became spring (at least by the calendar) the wet and cold weather continued. Spring was disguised as winter.
But, Mother Nature made amends by giving us some of the best showings of our Australian Native trees and plants. I had never seen such displays of beauty!
One of my favourite trees, the Red Flowering Eucalyptus Tree (Corymbia ficifolia) was no exception.
The Red Flowering Eucalyptus Tree is native to south coastal Western Australia. These photographs were taken in the Colac Botanical Gardens, in regional Victoria. The tree does very well in this area and is also used by the local Council for streetscaping.
