What is an evergreen tree?
Apparently, from my extensive research :), this pine tree is an example of an evergreen. It remains green though most of its life.
I loved spotting the new growth while I was out walking through the forest recently and zoomed in from above.
In botany, an evergreen is a plant which has foliage that remains green and functional through more than one growing season. This also pertains to plants that retain their foliage only in warm climates, and contrasts with deciduous plants, which completely lose their foliage during the winter or dry season. Source
Gum trees are a whole different shade of green
Yes, gum trees can be classified as evergreen, although it’s debatable as to whether they’re actually green or a dirty green. Australia has a different colour palette to most other places.
This collection shows some of my favourite evergreen gum tree shots:
I love the detritus from these red flowering gum trees, after the birds had got into them. Now that’s colour!
Becky’s Squares – Day #18
Becky’s square theme for July is Trees – here’s a link to her post today – it’s a monthly challenge where Becky posts a square photo every day and invites us all to join in, either daily or spasmodically as the whim takes us! I’m posting spasmodically although I seem to have got into the habit of posting almost every day so far, it’s been great fun! The only rule is that the main photo for the post has to be a square and there’s absolutely no pressure to join in every day 🙂
The theme for #SundayStills is under the trees this week. Make sure you visit Terri to see her post and her wonderful photos.
Next week Sunday Stills has a colour theme of Geometric.
Thanks for stopping by and taking a moment enjoy these trees with me. Your visit are always welcome.
