Red Flowering Gum Tree

August 5, 2011

Is it just me or are the trees in more spectacular bloom than usual this year? Right now, the Red Flowering Gum Tree is blooming like I don’t ever remember seeing before.

The blooms look a lot like eucalyptus flowers and the orange clumps are beautiful against the back drop of the thick green leaves.

This particular tree is my favorite. The shape is perfect and I have stopped a couple of times to marvel at how beautiful it is.

Beautiful. I think crape myrtles are looking especially good this year, too. Maybe it’s just a good year for summer flowering trees.

I have been noticing these trees more than ever this year as well and I thought that it was just me. So it must be the trees are having an exceptional year for us both to have noticed. Thank you for the beautiful pictures.

I agree. Now, if only my tomatoes would get their act together!

I was wondering if it was just me, too!
