That's so interesting. It looks like a fiber-optic tree.

I have never seen anything like it. Kind of reminds me of a duster.

Hey,

That looks cool! Seems like it's been well taken cared of because the needles are about the same size. Hehehe. I am not sure what I am talking about, but that was a nice picture.

What a beautiful tree. I have been photographing trees lately to post on my garden site. Boy would I love to see one of those. Only i do not live any where new Australia.
Thank you all for your comments. I wanted to let you all know as well that this photo was not taken in Australia - I've never been there. I took this photo while walking along a path at the botanical gardens in San Francisco where I live. It was so amazing I had to get a shot of it. It's beautiful to see in person.

This is the first time I have ever seen this a tree like this. It's fun to see new things like this, and it must have been even more fun for you. Your botanical gardens is a wonderful place.

What a funny looking tree! I love it. I also love SF. I just moved from there and I miss it! Great blog you have here, love your images!
Dorothy L, that's what caught my eye it's uniqueness.

betchai, I know, It was so cool looking I had to get photos of it.

Ratty, I stumbled onto it while walking a path I hadn't seen before. So it was a cool surprise.

Ashley, Thank you. Where are you living now?

looks like they have trimed into a ball. In the bush you dont usually see it as a ball shape. Also ive never seen one so big and the foliage is so dense, crazy.

Yes, this does look a bit like the one in my photo... yours has more leaves.
that fuzzy tree is so unique. glad you were able to bring it to us.
