Fuchsia gum

These very spectacular gums are from Western Australia and are found on roadside plantings through Victoria. they dont like my deep sandy soils tho.I drew/painted this one from one of the trees around Longeron College near Horsham where we were doing our fibre forum.
Yesterday was a day of shopping for food, trying to see what bits of the garden I could water and tidying up. I still have a fair bit of unpacking to do.
I walked early this morning as I had to go in for a blood test, arrived before 8 am to find I was 7th in line! So quite a wait.

A lovely watercolour Penny. The colours are charming. Fuchsia gum thrives on low rainfall - no wonder they are doing so well around the roadsides at the moment! Welcome Home.

Lovely colours. That muted sandy green looks beautiful with the orange. I could just imagine a white room with accents of those colours looking gorgeous
