These are the strangest things! I saw them in the flower shop yesterday when I was buying some Mistletoe. The pods have a kind of lid on which opens and out springs a yellow flower. I'm watching them so I don't miss the grand opening! I went back to the flower shop today to ask what they were and they are Eucalyptus flowers. Wow! I'd never seen them before. They are great shapes for drawing although Ffion says they just look like sticks with snails crawling all over them. OOOh!
