I love Gum Blossoms. Whenever I see them they bring back the childhood memories of my favorite book "Snugglepot & Cuddlepie" by May Gibbs which I still have sitting in my bookshelf. The illustrations were so amazing and had a real Australian feel to them. My mother also had a May Gibbs book when she was a child, she in turn handed it on to me, it also sits in my bookshelf (although a little worse for wear)

Upon arriving in Sydney, I encountered several references to the Flannel Flower (Actinotus helianthi) -- which apparently is seen as a symbol of the area. I encountered this specimen while hiking along the cliffs overlooking the Pacific Ocean in the southeastern suburbs of Sydney.
