I'm thinking .... gum-blossoms

Springtime we think colour, and flowers. These aren't especially flowers from the garden environment though. Sharing instead, some photos of the magnificent blooms from the Aussie gum-tree.

the ants were loving these blossoms!

and lastly, a little bit of graphics fun...

Hi Carole,
I had never heard of gum blossoms, what an unusual blossom, they remind me of acorns before they bloom!
Fantastic shots, thanks for sharing,
