GUMLEAF GLORY

Well - my third blog for the day!! I've really outdone myself!!
This afternoon, I filled a basket with gum leaves to continue my gumleaf garland, and couldn't resist posting on the beautiful colours of the leaves.
We don't have much of an autumn here in the subtropics [winter temps rarely drop below 15 in the day and 8 at night], but my evergreen 'blackbutt' eucalyptus tree sure is producing some gloriously coloured leaves.
I think the birds and possums knock down the green ones and they change to lovely mottly reds then golds and browns as they lie on the ground. This basket made about 30cm of garland. Still a way to go.
