G'day to the Sunshine State.
I was in SEQ 2 weeks ago and I saw a gum (eucalypt) flowering and I'm wondering what it is. It was flowering 2 weeks ago at least, the flowers are large, creamy white clusters, not prolific but certainly noticeable. The trees had a rather open habit with a rounded crown. The ones I saw were from 20-40 feet tall perhaps. Ring any bells? Sorry, didn't get any photos.
On a side note, I was amazed at how many people have hives around there. Either I saw hives around or signs advertising honey seemingly all over the place. My wife just started rolling her eyes and hoping I wouldn't spot the honey sign by the side of the road as we were driving around. To be fair, I only brought home 2 jars but I did have fun pointing out all the potential stops to her.
