rose of the west

I have found out what who she is.

(pic from

Eucalyptus macrocarpa (Mottlecah or Rose of the West) is the best looking australian native I have seen. Ever. I found some gumnuts (the caps actually) underneath a local plant in North Beach here in Perth and have been on the hunt since. I think I might get me one in a pot?

Oh, she's very pretty! I love those pale leaves.
Hope you have a very happy new year over there in the west :-)
