Silver dollar gums

Every now and then when I get to a T in the road on my way home, I am tempted to turn left rather than right, and take the long way home. 

Today was one of those days.  The weather was showery with occasional heavy downpours.  Not the best weather for taking a scenic route.  Still, the urge was there.

We don't have any silver dollar gums down our road and I just had to stop when I saw these with their silvery shimmer right beside the road.

Enough to make an old Aussie like me a bit homesick.


  1. We don't have them here but I wish we did.

  2. They are pretty, lovely shots. Have a happy week ahead!

  3. I like silvery trees. We have something like that over here, too :) Most beautiful, when the wind goes through the leafs.
    Have a beautiful day

  4. We have Whitebeams which have silvery white undersides to the leaves and if the wind blows strongly from a particular direction they will all show their shimmering undersides. They are lovely.

  5. Certain trees just call your name, don't they?

  6. I had no idea what a silver dollar gum was until I clicked on your post... (for all I knew it could have been some kind of chewing gum!)


I love to know who's visiting. Leave me a sign!
