The exquisite gold glowing bark of a Eucalypt on our nature walk today. Can anybody help us identify it?
Eucalypts, in particular, have a variety of interesting barks, but the most unusual, to me, are the species with these fascinating polished barks of copper and bronze and gold. Eucalyptus salubris, E.sargentii, E.diptera, E.campaspe and E.eremophila all have beautiful bark of varying metallic shades, but none are native to our area. It's a bit of a mystery, this one!
