Our royal gum tree

We planted this tree - a Silver Princess - on the weekend of William and Kate's wedding.  It was not designed to be a tribute to the Royal Family but the timing and the name just happened to fit rather well.

But here's the cool bit.  A couple of weeks ago, it blossomed for the very first time!  Talk about timing.  How neat is that?

That's great. Do you give the tree a little curtsey as you go by each morning?

And hope the back is doing better today.

Like :) That is very cool. I really like the flowers.

It is a rather charming tree. I might practice giving a neat little bob of the head next time I go out.

Back is on the mend, thanks.

I'm still getting used to your new photo! 'Who is that? Oh, of course it's Karen!'

The flowers are a lovely colour. I can't wait to see what it looks like as a mature tree in the years to come. I hope both the tree and the royal marriage grow well for decades to come.

On a completely unrelated matter, could you email me at
Got an idea I'd like to discuss and don't seem to have an email contact.
