More on the Eucalyptus Bloom--Seed Pod




A photo series of the buds, blossoms and seed pod of a eucalyptus tree.
The photo above show an immature bud of the Eucalyptus. It continues to develop to the showy blossom in February in Southern California. The fruit or seed pod is woody and the seeds shed through the slits in the top of the fruit.

I love those seed pods. They look like you should be able to string them on a necklace and jingle in rich, resonant tones whenever you move. :)

I agree. I think I should try to create a artwork using them. They are amazing.
