Seen from the front yard of my (rented) house in Ashfield.

    The foreground tree looks large and that is what my eyes focused on, but the tree behind is very big.

      Andrew, it’s quite a small tree as to its height though as you can see its trunk is pretty solid. There are a few larger trees in the park including one I have mentioned before on this blog (not in this picture) which has a number desirable hollows, one of which has been the subject of frequent dispute going well into the night between a pair of cockatoos and a possum.

    Ashfield? Renting or leasing? Either or, I do love a flowering gum which it looks like if if isn’t. Nearly the longest day. Happy long days .

    Just did the magnification trick. It’s a thing of great beauty. Look at that mass of flowers not to mention the fabulous trunk / bark. Honey scented?

      I can’t remember any particular scent – flowers up a bit high to tell. Flowers are over now. The picture is from a couple of weeks ago when the flowers caught the late afternoon sun.
