Gum Blossoms

My neighbour's gum tree is flowering. I have been watching the flowers come in to bloom over the last few weeks and the parrots have been getting stuck into the blossoms well. I have a good view of the tree when I look out my back door as it is right next to my fence. The flowers remind me of little fairy tutus.

I love those blossoms - and the honey smell is so rich. I bet they are full of bees. This year has been great for all the flowering gums - I think they're making up for lost time.
