Photo a Day 98 - Trees

Our Eucalypt trees have a wonderful way of re-inventing themselves. They can be cut down, burnt out but as long as there is a stump they will magically come to life again.  This old tree was growing in a dry creekbed way up in the north of South Australia in our beautiful Flinders ranges.

And in close up you can see some of the trauma this old girl has suffered.  Hmm.  Are trees girls or boys?  I wonder how old this one is.

  1. A wonderful shape and I hope it sprouts grenn/blue leaves soon. It is huge.

  2. I did not know this about the eucalyptus....so interesting.

  3. Great old tree! Such character! Glad you posted it for NF's Trees & Bushes. I don't have anything this week.
