CROCHET PATTERNS (Pattern #19 Snow Gum Tree Flower) – 365 Flowers Bouquet Project

365 Flower Bouquet Project – PATTERN DIRECTORY,  the landing page of my blog contains links to all the flower crochet patterns I've designed so far.

If you are familiar with Ravelry and you’d like to have a go at my patterns, join us at 365 Crochet Flowers Bouquet on Ravelry.

I guess, everyday you learn something. What I've learned today is that the gum trees are actually the Eucalyptus Trees. This was a surprise, since I probably learned this in school, long time ago, but obviously I must have forgotten all about it. The photo that Louise sent me shows flowers of a Snow Gum Tree, according to http://www.gondwananet.com/australian-gum-tree.html . They are incredibly beautiful. My time is really limited today, so I’ll have a go at it, but will probably come back with a revised version at later stage.
