Eucalyptus stricklandii (Yellow-flowered Blackbutt)

Every Christmas I have used the flowers from Eucalyptus stricklandii as part of the table decorations. Except last Christmas because the tree was not in flower then. The Purple-Crowned Lorikeets and Red Wattlebirds have found the flowers and the trees are alive with birds. I could not get a photo to include the birds as the flowers were out of reach and the birds seem to disappear amongst the foliage.

This is another of those lovely Western Australian trees that are very decorative in flower.
