Swamp bloodwood

Aren't these flowers absolutely gorgeous? They are on a swamp bloodwood (Corymbia intermedia) growing in our Botanic Gardens, and are just finishing flowering now. I am sure I should be able to do something textiley with this picture, I am just not sure quite what. I just love looking at them when I go walking. Our Gardens are not quite five years old, and nearly everything has been planted in that time. Because we live in the tropics plants grow very quickly, the difference from the greenfield is pretty amazing.

No time to do any painting or sewing today - I couldn't get to my room anyway as Bill was having a business meeting in the office blocking entrance to my space. Since he earns money and I don't I suppose I can't complain. I continued with some of the boring paperwork I have been putting off till crisis point (right now) has been reached!!!

The possums are running around on our steel roof with their hobnailed boots at present and our blue heeler Jack is taking great exception to them. I find it hard to believe that a cat the same size as or bigger than a possum can make no noise, but these critters would wake the dead. Shall go and sort Jack out. Bye for now.
