Street Trees for Bees

A street near me is lined with beautiful Brush Box trees (Lophostemon confertus).

As well as looking lovely, they provide welcome shade in summer. (That's Max stopped in the shade above.) 

Right now they are also flowering, and each tree is humming loudly with bees. You'll have to imagine the bee in that picture!


  1. Who said there's no such thing as a free lunch!

  2. they are a nice tree, good shade and pretty bark as well as the flowers which are lovely. k.
