It’s hard to take a photo here WITHOUT a Eucalyptus tree being in the shot.
So my sister wants a post about Eucalyptus Trees. Again, I am not the one to be giving solid info, but I am photographing them – its hard not to. There are so many kinds, shapes, colors, and sizes. Many are called Peppermint: Silver, Black, Swamp, White, Risdon. Then a favorite, Stringy Bark. And then the largest flowering plant in the world, the second largest tree in the world (second to the Redwood), around 300′ tall, is the Eucalyptus Regnans (King).

You can see the whole Windgrove grove of Eucalyptus in front of Peter’s house on this post, Hence the Name Windgrove.
On many of the trees you can see by how the bark spirals around that some trees do indeed rotate over the years as they grow. They grow up spiraling, not straight.
