How wonderful to step outside the front door and see the eucaplyptus silver princess in bold, bright bloom. No wonder the bees are attracted to it. And they are not the only ones. Even my little neighbours, aged 18 months and three, wonder at its beauty — the way the umbels pop their tops, and the blooms splay out.
This glorious gumnut brightens the day.
