I love a sun burnt country

Post by Sno »

A lot of the Eucalyptus around here are showing the signs of our hot summer . No I am not going to show blackened fire ground trees . These are Brittle gums that have been ‘ sun burnt’ .

Hi Sno, Thanks for posting, it's always good to see these unusual shaped trees growing like that naturally. They remind me of some of the weird shapes that some Vietnamese bonsai growers come up with.
