This is what I look at out my bedroom window when I wake up in the morning, it's the tops of the small trees in my fenced garden down in front of the house. The white flowering tree is a jarrah, absolutely stuffed full of bees at present. The smaller tree in front with the red new foliage is my precious red flowering gum. It hasn't flowered yet, having struggled to grow over the three years it's been in the ground. It tries very hard to rip itself out of the ground with every windstorm, and then tries equally hard to ringbark itself with the ties we have staked it with. This year however, we have changed its stake to an enormous star picket, and tied it with soft, thick rope and slowly it is settling down and putting on some growth. I always had this vision in my head, of us being able to see the flowering tops of those trees from the house, and I have my fingers crossed that maybe the red flowering gum with give us a few flowers this year.
