A Wonderful Sight – West Australian Red-Flowering Gums!

2014_0109imagefacebook0089One of my very favourite Australian native trees is now in flower! I’m speaking of the West Australian Red-flowering Gum.

Although Sydney, N.S.W., is not their original home, these delightful plants have adapted perfectly to this environment, and right now there is a wonderful assortment of colours (all in shades of red) in flower.

Here is one of the brightest, growing in a garden near to our home.

I studied Short Story Writing and Freelance Journalism for a total of five years when I was younger, but it's only lately that I've tried to make a go of it as a professional. I have written eleven books now, all published by Amazon Kindle, and most also published as paperbacks by Createspace and available on the Amazon web-site. Several Sydney libraries have copies of some volumes, and they are currently on loan.My books are all listed by Goodreads. The total number of ratings of my titles there is in excess of 80, with an average of 4.4 stars. I am happily married to Ronald Sharp, the creator of the Grand Organ in the Concert Hall of the Sydney Opera House. He has consistently encouraged me to write, and has spent much time in editing, compiling, and designing the covers of each book. I'm keen on swimming, love animals, and appreciate good music and art.
