Something beautiful

How pretty are these?

We planted this eucalyptus tree about two and a half years ago after it was a gift to our family. We have watched it grow taller, trimmed the bottom branches off to encourage new growth and watched as it has continued to thrive. Before we went away for holidays at last Christmas, we noticed tiny buds appearing. We hoped that we would not be away when they decided to burst forth their colour.

We got back from holidays and inspected the tree, but still the buds remained closed. It was not until two weeks ago that this tree opened its beautiful flowers for us all to admire. A deep rich pink.

So beautiful, and on our own front lawn. Something I look at and admire every day.
