I guess, everyday you learn something. What I've learned today is that the gum trees are actually the Eucalyptus Trees. This was a surprise, since I probably learned this in school, long time ago, but obviously I must have forgotten all about it. The photo that Louise sent me shows flowers of a Snow Gum Tree, according to http://www.gondwananet.com/australian-gum-tree.html . They are incredibly beautiful. My time is really limited today, so I’ll have a go at it, but will probably come back with a revised version at later stage.
