Thanks for sharing the photos. This is my first time to see a Eucalyptus trees 🙂

Happy WW!

that is very cool – I am goin to show my brother this one – (he’s an arborist)

This is beautiful. I would love to see it growing. Only see the dried variety here.

Australia has thousands of them. Eucalyptus trees are high in alcohol. Hence every summer, one butt of live cigarette thrown into an even small pile of dried eucalyptus leaves can set the nation into conflagration especially aided with high, four strong winds.

Great posts here.

Great shots of the eucalyptus. I love the way the bark looks.

Great shots….but is a WW or TT??? lol….Happy WW from me:)

Eucalypts are such wonderful dye plant and well worth having aroud.

We felt right at home in San Diego with all the gum trees around. I always say the leaves are unremarkable but the bark is fascinating.

I’ve never seen a eucalyptus–what a strange looking trunk it has!

The everglades has melaleuca trees that have bark like that. They are extreamly envasive and are taking over. Cool collage!

Very neat collection we have a lot of Eucalypts out here in Cali and I would have never thought of this very creative!

These are huge trees. I wonder how old the trees are. Lovely collage.

I like trees even better than flowers.

You have created another wonderful collage. I love those huge trees.

I’ve never seen eucalyptus before – the bark is so interesting! Happy Thursday!

101 Things About Me

Oh, wow. I have never see eucalyptus. I’m sucking on a cough drop and inhaling eucalyptus scent as I read your post. How multi-sensory. Happy TT! You always have the most interesting blogs. Thanks.

Beautiful collage !

The pictures are not eucalypts but Melaleuca (common name: Paperbark)

Both are Australian natives.

Eucalypts don’t have alcohol so much as Eucalyptus oil.

The oil has many uses including: decongestant, cleaning agent and fragrance. The oil is quite flammable and a contributing factor in southern Australian bushfires.

Not so great in Cal. with their fire sistuation. either.
