Paperbark flowers

The Daily Post word prompt: Transformation

The Paperbark trees are flowering. The lovely creamy white blossoms attract birds, bees and all manner of insect. I thought that they were just the perfect thing to Transform

Some people have said it reminds them of a May Gibbs drawing. Australians will know Snugglepot and Cuddlepie. Have as look here to see a bit of my Australian childhood

  1. I was intrigued when I saw the title of your post — here in the north we also have a paperbark tree – it’s a maple species, Acer griseum – with beautiful exfoliating, cinnamon colour bark. I really like the flowers of your Melaleuca. Do they attract a lot of pollinators?

    1. They most certainly do. Many Rainbow Lorikeets, King Parrots, Scarlet Honeyeater Little and Noisy Friarbirds are regular birds. Lots of native as well as honey bees, beetles, wasps etc. I am sure there would be moths at night.
