How to identify a gum nut. Or not.
Sometimes even the most chatty of bloggers just doesn’t have a great deal to say.
This is when I’m glad that a picture tells a thousand words.
Here’s the equivalent of a 1,000 word essay:
In hindsight I wish I’d gone with a vertical format for this one, but I liked the idea of having this mega-cropped horizontal slice of eucalypt action. What do you think?
I thought these were gum nuts from a Eucalyptus Macrocarpa tree, but on closer inspection (of Google images, not the gum nuts), it appears they are not. If anyone can identify them, please leave a comment below - I really want to know!
What I love about these gum nuts is that they have four rounded sides, but - curiously, I thought - a five-pointed star-shaped opening. There’s something quite refreshing about meeting a gum nut that seems bent on messing with your head.
Anyway, it appears I was more chatty than I realised.
And now for your viewing pleasure…
