Last weekend we went for a drive and checked out the areas where the bushfire had been earlier this year. It still looks devastated, but there are signs of regrowth appearing on the trees. Luckily our Eucalypts have an amazing ability to rise from the ashes.
These are South Australian Blue Gums, so-called for their new blue growth. Their correct name is Eucalyptus leucoxylon.
It is comforting to know that these beautiful trees will grow again and provide a habitat for so many species of wildlife.
