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!
I understand perfectly why you do! 🙂
Beautiful! For a moment I thought it was an unsquare 🙂 🙂
Ha, yes, it could have been a contender for January’s light, but I didn’t want to square it 😏
I have never seen this plant. The bark looks lovely
Definitely enchanting, Jude. 😍
Glad to enchant you Sylvia 🙂
What an unusual tree, Jude. Looks great in the photo.
Best wishes, Pete. x
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?
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?
It is a beautiful color bark. I’ve often taken to noticing bark as much as foliage.
Very interesting tree trunks, and I spy a couple of tree ferns in the background.
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!
