    Hi, Deb – First I needed to enlarge your picture as much as my computer screen would allow. When that didn’t work, and with the prose you gave, I needed to look up what ‘Red Flowering Gums” were. Corymbia ficifolia! I feel so much smarter now! Thank you for sharing this. 🙂

      Wow! My sister and I looked up the correct name for them, (and you’ve got it right), but decided to use the more common name instead. I’m very impressed with your research, but not that surprised at all!! The sight was gorgeous in the early morning light. Thanks so much 😊 for visiting with us.

    How pretty. We have these trees in South Africa but not in such abundant quantities. They call them Australian Firetrees locally.

      They are just lovely aren’t they? How interesting to hear them called that in South Africa thanks for that insight!

    they’re gorgeous. We have all the fire trees and poincianas finishing at the moment so also carpeting the roads with red.

    I love gum blossom – except when we lived in our last house on a bush block – they used to shower down all over our pool cover and were a pig to clean up – still beautiful when they were on the trees – just really messy in places where I didn’t want them to be! We get mainly creamy coloured ones in WA.

      Yes I can imagine they’d be a problem in some cases! They just look so pretty 🙂

    Hi Deb,
    I know about gums, but expected to see the blossoms on the tree…what a surprise to see them carpeting the path.
    Incredible color!
