[Monday 16 January 2009] - Australia Day
Wombat and I went on a gum-blossom hunt in honour of Australia Day - there are a number of eucalypts that started flowering this week. When you get close to the tree, it smells like the sweetest honey and you can hear a mighty buzzing from the thousands of bees gathering the bounty - guess they think it smells perfect too. Of course, the blossoms are all more than five metres up in the air, so you've got to be pretty far away to get a photo. This was taken from the other side of the big dam.
