Orange Flowering Gum

These are pics of the Orange Flowering Gum blossom. I stopped on the Gingin brook road and took some photos. The shire council have planted these trees on the road side. there are several different colours of blossom. At this time of the year the trees are in full blossom, quite spectacular as everything else is burning off to a dull brown with the heat.
Avoiding the numerous bees I 'stole' (one is NOT allowed to pick flora) a sprig of the blossom to take home and get some close up shots.
