Leptospermum?

Watercolour 10 x 14 cm


Some scraggly native shrub growing in our front garden that you probably wouldn't look twice at, has the most lovely, delicate seed pods. Would they be considered a gum nut? I just love the way the pod looks when it's shut exactly like a Trivial Pursuit playing piece. These are just a couple of pages from my sketch book that explain it a bit. They're probably only about 7mm or so across, so you have to look really close to get all the detail, or wear those $7.99 glasses from the chemist.
