Gum Blossoms 3

A close-up of a gum flower cluster where most of the flowers have morphed into new gumnuts coloured predominantly in a purple blush, with smaller patches of greenish cream. Only a few flowers round the bottom edge of the cluster still have their fringe of red filaments and tiny asters. The gumnuts are shaped like little goblets covered with pointy domes, and bulging where they join the stem.
