  1. I love that bark, especially bathed in sunlight. 🙂

      Whenever I visit this garden I end up taking a photo of these trees, they are so lovely!

      1. I understand perfectly why you do! 🙂

    Beautiful! For a moment I thought it was an unsquare 🙂 🙂

    1. Heyjude says:

      Ha, yes, it could have been a contender for January’s light, but I didn’t want to square it 😏

      I must have a dozen photos of this tree in different locations as the bark always looks stunning and especially when the sun catches it.

    How on earth did Chilean myrtle end up in Cornwall?

    1. Heyjude says:

      Victorians loved collecting plants from all over the world.

        Thanks. I didn’t know that. Did any of the imports have disastrous effects crowding out native species?

  6. It is a beautiful color bark. I’ve often taken to noticing bark as much as foliage.

  7. Very interesting tree trunks, and I spy a couple of tree ferns in the background.

    1. Heyjude says:

      Yes, there are plenty of tree ferns in the gardens down here! You feel as though you are in another country.

    And it’s very tactile!
