I think of Murray Bail's, Eucalyptus, a book of stories and trees.

Quintessentially Australian, as are all your wonderful and evocative images here.

I wonder, do gum trees look different from Vancouver?

haven't read it, lis. i should check if the vancouver public library has it. they have a surprisingly good selection of ausn books.

oh, gumtrees are one of the things i miss the most. they look wonderful from vancouver!

ooh - I wouldn't recommend Eucalyptus. I was disappointed. But I guess if you are borrowing and not buying you can't go wrong.

A tree book I like is 'If Trees Could Speak' - would have to get back to you with an author. It tells the story of significant Australian trees both native and introduced. It is very cool and one day I will use it to travel around Australia.

Hi Gumtreefid,
Beautiful evocative piccies.

yes the confluence of things previously called gum trees is a strange thing.
