The Quest ~

I went out this morning with my pole pruner on a quest.

Down to the local bridle path on a hunt to seek the elusive...


Eucalyptus cuttings are great to use either massed together as in this Moroccan urn, or as a filler in dried flower arrangements.
as a bonus, bringing them inside also makes the house smell wonderful, and once dried they seem to last forever.

As you can see, I was successful in my adventure, but did notice that the lack of rain water from our current drought has taken a dramatic toll on the trees. I salvaged all of this from a branch that had recently broken off.

In my next post I will show you one of the things I did with this bounty.

So come back soon for the next installment...


  1. So glad that it has been raining the last couple of days. There aren't any trees around here - only magnolia . But I do love the smell of them.
    Have a great week.

  2. Can't wait to see your latest arrangement. I'm sure you house smells just lovely with your Eucalyptus leaves.
