The Purple Leaved-Mallee, Eucalyptus pluricaulis - subspecies porphyrea, evokes wonder as the morning sun highlights its coloured foliage. Wisdom comes from a close study of the light falling over and around the forms. On closer inspection beauty is in the details. Take time to look again. Socrates wrote the title.
