Pink – bright, neon pink – is the colour of the the flowers on our Eucalyptus Leucoxylon Rosea tree – much better known as our Pink Flowering Gum!
As you can see from this photo by Geoff Park, the beauty of the flowers is masked by the mass of this small tree that is native to Australia.
I did my best to simplify and show off the design of the flowers and leaves moving in the breeze in this, the next of my series of ‘Wildflowers at Balligar’.
The pink in the original watercolour painting is much more vibrant than reproduced here. I haven’t been able to reproduce the colour ‘Opera Rose’ by photographing or scanning. This colour ‘swatch’ may give a better impression:
I hope I leave you feeling ‘in the pink’ today,
