Cover of “The Story of Snugglepot and Cuddlepie” by May Gibbs

Eucalyptus trees grow throughout the San Francisco Bay Area and bloom in spring.  The blooms are featured as flower people in a popular children’s book in Australia called “The Story of Snugglepot and Cuddlepie” by May Gibbs.  After it rains, Eucalyptus trees smell just like a Hall’s cough drop!

About Pam
Richard and Pam lived in the San Francisco Bay Area 14 years (1987-1999 and 2008-2011). They lived in Florida 13 years previously, until returning in July 2011 to present. They hope their photography will encourage you to get out and discover nature's beauty in your own backyard, parks, and wild places.
