“Scribbly Gum” – Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge

“Scribbly Gum” my entry in Cee’s Weekly Photo Challenge, crooked and squiggly lines.

The scribbly gum tree is a eucalyptus tree with a very smooth, pale trunk. The distinctive brownish ‘scribbles’ are made by the larvae of the tiny scribbly moth. These larvae are harmless to the tree and, though found on many eucalypts, it’s only in a few varieties – commonly E.haemostoma, E. racemosa or E.sclerophylla – where the signatures become the most pronounced feature of the tree.”Source20140618-110107-39667287.jpg

About ladyredspecs

I live in sunny Brisbane, Australia. My love of good food drives me as a cook, a reader, a traveller, an artist and but mostly as an eater. I cooked professionally for many years but have no formal training. Simply guided by a love of eating good food, respect for ingredients and an abhorrence of artificial additives, I cook instinctively applying the technical know how acquired by experience. I hope you enjoy what I share Sandra AKA ladyredspecs
