As we all head out to spend the day celebrating our lucky country I thought I’d share one of our true botanical treasures.
Flowering gum is everywhere at the moment and if you’re lucky enough to have a tree nearby you’ll know how peculiar these fuzzy little flowers are. For many of us – our first introduction to this gorgeous flower was through May Gibbs’ cheeky characters Snugglepot and Cuddlepie, childhood favourites.
Flowering gum comes in a wide array of colours ranging from soft cream and the palest pink, to vibrant shades of musk pink, hot pink and flame red. They’ll add an unmistakenly Australian touch to your wedding, blending in well with a romantic bouquet of roses, or a bold mix of orchids and tropical blooms.
I hope you enjoy this special Australia Day tribute to His & Hers – we really are the lucky country to have such an amazing range of native flowers.
