Happy Friday! It’s grey, windy, and rainy here (Adelaide) right now, so I thought I’d add a bit of colour. And aside from a flock of rainbow lorikeets or some fancy sea slugs, there’s no more astonishing colour than the rainbow eucalyptus (eucalyptus deglupta). It’s found mainly in the Philippines, but also on other tropical islands such as Maui.
What makes this tree so stunning is that pieces of the bark peels off, leaving a bright green inner bark. This ages progressively, changing to blue, purple, orange, and maroon. For many more incredible images, go here.
