These speculator little blooms are from a tree in my back yard. They are from the Crimson Mallee tree, a Eucalyptus tree (E. landsdowneana).

The buds occur in groups of seven and are bright red and sometimes pink.

These are the empty pods once the blooms have gone.

Crimson Mallee is usually found on rock slopes in the Gawler and Flinders Ranges, rather than my backyard, and it is considered to be a rare species.
