    Those ‘cones’ in the last last photo are gumnuts, the woody bits formed after a Eucalypt flowers. They are very prominent in Australian popular culture- there are characters called Snugglepot & Cuddlepie who are ‘gumnut babies’, and wear gumnuts as hats.

    Those characters sound adorable. After a week I was told an insect crawled out of the gumnuts I left in my sisters kitchen. She was so horrified lol.
