I meant to get this tree in a few weeks ago but better late than never!
It was a self-sown tree that came up beside a zygocactus in a terracotta pot from seeds dropped off a huge English Maple at my old home. It started it’s life as a self-sown plant in the garden of an elderly lady we knew and ended up over ten metres tall by the time we left Traralgon. I’m really looking forward to watching this one grow. It makes our back patch look more like a yard :)
Self-sown plants are a bit like those random story or poem ideas . . . you never know what will become of them :)
This tree isn’t actually at the bottom of my garden, we saw it beside the Goulburn River on our travels recently, but it reminded me of my childhood. I was an avid reader, especially of Enid Blyton books, and my head was always filled with dreams and stories of little people living at the bottom of the garden. I was convinced I would find them one day! Alas, this tree looked like it might have been a hiding place for rabbits rather than little people but I’ll keep looking . . .this little girl hasn’t grown up completely yet :)
A beautiful, peaceful place beside a river. A new fishing spot for my husband and a story or poem for me. I wonder who will get the first bite :)
