  6. Well, John, gum trees are yours, so of course they are beautiful over there. I remember the first time I was in Melbourne in '88 I saw the pollen 'travel' like colouds. (You keep Russell Crowe.)

  7. This looks like a piece of abstrat art. I wouldn't have guessed that it was a tree!

    By the way...I've heard of gum trees but I had no idea they were just a eucalyptus!

  8. Susan, it was great fun looking for patterns all over, and just from a small section of the trunk, too.

  9. Looks like a NSW South Coast spotted gum - one of my favourite trees. Nice shot!

  12. It does, doesn't it? And blown up, the texture is rather leathery, although the tree itself is very smooth and wonderful.
