True Colors - Eucalyptus

I'm playing True Colors with Reilly and Denny. This week's color is eucalyptus.


The leaves on this wall hanging are eucalyptus.  My mom made this in 1988 - years before I was even born.

 The Australian twist~
A eucalyptus wreath!

 And another twist~
Australian stamps! 
Thank you for the beautiful card you sent us, Noah, Willow, Tess and Lucy.   You guys are so sweet!

See you all next week.

Love ya lots,
Mitch

Oh...a eucalyptus wreath - does it still have a eucalyptus smell? And kookaburra stamps - you are so clever to find those!

Hi Mitch! We are stopping by to see how you are doing as we have been thinking about you alot. It's so hard to lose a loved one. We are glad that you are helping your mom and dad with things around the house and trying to keep yourself busy. The eucalyptus is very pretty! xoxo Chloe and LadyBug

We used to have a Eucalyptus tree but it grew so big we had to chop it down. We think you are so clever to find so many things in the correst colour every week.

A Eucalyptus wreath is a fabulous idea! I once lived next to a eucalyptus forest, and I should've made a wreath. It would have smelled so good.

Aunt Lydia and Dave send such a nice gift package.

I didn't play this week, too much work at work. ;) I wasn't sure what color eucalyptus was, but it is a lovely shade of green. You aced it!

Quick question: How does your mom wash her wall hanging?? Mommy got a Hmong applique as a Christmas gift and is afraid the colors will run, but it needs to be cleaned.
