Day 125

Day 125


There are rainbows everywhere…

…even in the Mindanao gum tree (rainbow eucalyptus). Its smooth, orange-tinted bark peels away in strips to reveal a canvas of green, red, orange, gray, and purplish brown hues. And as it sheds, new colors and patterns are unveiled, each tree a unique natural masterpiece.

Its leaves are antiseptic and teas made from the leaves are taken to treat asthma and coughs. The tree also has the ability to repel mosquitoes.

Beauty and medicine.
