New coat

I got myself out for some much needed exercise this morning and the bush is just full of shed bark from the trees.  The ground is messy and it's a bit of a bush fire hazard but the new shiny trunks are wonderful.

The tree looks like the bark of the madrone.

I just googled 'madrone' and can see the resemblance. Mine is called an Angophora or Sydney Red Gum. They have a few things in common like shedding bark but ours have a different flower - more like a Eucalyptus tree.
