glorious Bottle Trees

Last week we made a trip down to the big smoke and took in a picnic at the Roma Street Parklands.  Taking in the gardens we came across these massive Bottle Trees.  An awesome sight...

Very inspiring for sculptural works...


  1. What interesting shapes these trees are.
    I can see how inspiring can be for your art.

  2. It's a beautiful place and must've been heaven for Glen. Glad you had some time out.

  3. I walk past one of these trees each day - not this big yet - and like you I love that form!

  4. Hi Marilena, they are quiet amazing trees.

    Hi Jo, it is a beautiful place.

    Hi Fiona, how wonderful to have one near - I hear they take years to grow this size.

  5. Hi Kim, when in Broome several years ago we saw lots of Bottle trees and some were in flower - a beautiful white bloom with lots of long stamens - thanks for reminding me, I'll have to see if I still have an image.

  6. Hi Anna, wow the flowers sound lovely, I've not seen them in flower - must google and have a look now :-)


Thanks for taking the time to comment I really appreciate them!
