From the thumbnail, it looked like flesh and bones. The gum trees in AU peel like this too.
Larry Bliss: Sounds like a good excuse for me to visit Australia...

What fantastic bark, colours and texture. I have just Googled this plant and see it has spectacular blossom too
Larry Bliss: Unfortunately the blossoms on these trees are too far up for a decent close-up.
Peeling bark, that trendy distressed look. Great colours.
Larry Bliss: I never knew I was trendy... smile
