March 23 was National Eucalypt Day in Australia. Each year, those who wish to can place an online vote for the Eucalypt of the year and the winner is announced on Eucalypt Day.
The winner for 2020 is Eucalyptus erythrocorys, or Illyarrie, the name given to it by the Noongar people of Western Australia. It is also known as the red-capped gum.
This tree, which grows in a street near where I live is not very tall and quite scrappy but what it lacks in tailoring it more than makes up for in glorious decoration.
