Happy Australia Day

On this Australia Day, I thought I'd post a picture of a little flowering gum that's growing in my native garden. I don't know what it's called as it was given to me by someone who dug it up from her garden saying she "didn't like natives". Can you imagine someone not liking our beautiful plants? I can't!

And here's a flower from our very old 'Old Man Banksia' which puts on a show every year in time for the black cockatoos to come along and prune them off.  
And look, there's a rusty old kangaroo enjoying a scratch.....

And a fat goanna lying in the sun!
All in my garden today.

Happy Australia Day!

  1. Beautiful! I was just down the road earlier photographing a beautiful flowering gum, similar to yours, maybe a bit more orange in colour. They are so lovely.
