Gum Trees

On Port Hill, one of the nicest residential areas of Nelson. Our good friend Trish grew up in the house opposite these trees. This is for you, Trish.

  6. Now I have this song going through my head: "Kukaburro sits in the old gum tree..." After all these years of singing that song, it's nice to see what a gum tree looks like.(how do you spell kukaburro??)

  7. Thank you everyone,

    I’m not sure about chewing gum, but I guess it’s not likely.
    Yup, I’m pretty sure it comes from OZ and so the POSSUM which we do not want. Tree is great though. (John, if you are talking about R.C, you can keep him.)

    I’m not familiar with “Kukaburro”, but is that a King Fisher?

  8. I know that among other things, you get floor polish from the sap of the gum tree - and Carol, I wonder if it's kuckaburra, which is, I think, an Australian bird. And Benny, possums were broughthere by the European immigrants, I think. So we can blame everything on John.

  12. thanks Meg and Ben. Teach me not to check your blog for a day or two and you put a photo on just for me. Although maybe it is just part of a plan to make me miss Nelson so much that I want to come back.
