Hey everyone, amazing how nature always does what it does. I grow around 30 bonsai plants and counting, one morning I woke up and saw this gorgeous little mushroom that decided to change the landscape of my newly planted Blue-Gum Bonsai Tree.
We have had alot of rain of late so the 'wet look' on the rock partnered next to the little mushroon and Eucalyptus is just gorgeous!
As per wikipedia.org:
Eucalyptus (/ˌjuːkəˈlɪptəs/) is a genus of over seven hundred species of flowering trees, shrubs or mallees in the myrtle family, Myrtaceae. Along with several other genera in the tribe Eucalypteae, including Corymbia, they are commonly known as eucalypts. Plants in the genus Eucalyptus have bark that is either smooth, fibrous, hard or stringy, leaves with oil glands, and sepals and petals that are fused to form a "cap" or operculum over the stamens. The fruit is a woody capsule commonly referred to as a "gumnut".
Most species of Eucalyptus are native to Australia, and every state and territory has representative species. About three-quarters of Australian forests are eucalypt forests. Wildfire is a feature of the Australian landscape and many eucalypt species are adapted to fire, and resprout after fire or have seeds which survive fire.
A few species are native to islands north of Australia and a smaller number are only found outside the continent. Eucalypts have been grown in plantations in many other countries because they are fast growing and have valuable timber, or can be used for pulpwood, for honey production or essential oils. In some countries, however, they have been removed because they are highly flammable. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eucalyptus
On one of our apiaries I found this little tree, I just had to have it, so dug it up and plated it in a bonsai pot I did immediately, to be nurtured and loved at my home, it promises to look amazing in a few months I believe!
Nature the incredible!
Love and light, may you be abundantly blessed and have an amazing week!
