Over the last few weeks I’ve been having a love affair with eucalyptus blossoms or gum blossoms as they’re often called.
They come in the most fabulous colours: bright orange, a whole range of pinks from hot to soft, vibrant reds and deep burgundy. I love to photograph them all. I find them at the Sydney Flower Markets, at my corner shop which has a wonderful selection of flowers, and some even bloom on the eucalyptus trees in my neighbourhood. The buds unfurl like little Japanese hats to show their stunning colours.
The flowers don’t last long but if you like these beautiful blooms to brighten your day then visit my online shop for fine-art prints of gum blossoms and other Australian native flowers.
