Mick, holy cracker!!!! Now I have never seen something so cool in my life!!! Tell me about the black boys, Xanthorrea. I am also going to google it to understand. But can you tell me any experience you have had with it? How long after fire destruction does it take the trees to flower? Incredible.
When we were in Fiji, I saw something that looked minutely similar. I thought that they were just some kind of tree trunks standing in a group. At that time we did not have a digital camera, just the old film one. I have a picture, but it is a hard copy. I would like to post it, so I am going to ask my husband if he can scan it for me, and maybe I can post it, maybe today. He loves to display his photography, so he probably will.
I am only remembering what the photograph looks like, but I think that they might now be some kind of plant too. We'll see, I'll look at it again and see if it might possibly be. Great day. Cindi
