between the eucalyptus & ginkgo
Summer in May, at least that's how it feels in the garden lately.
We have a new evergreen in the backyard; an Eucalyptus Gunnii tree.
The small eucalyptus stands beside the ginkgo tree on the terrace. The new tree is an evergreen tree. The small round gray-green leaves give off a delicious eucalyptus smell. Especially when the leaf is bruised, a strong eucalyptus smell is released. Good thing is, mosquitoes hate this smell, so perfect for long summer evenings in the garden.
This afternoon we planted the new evergreen, a remembrance tree for Henk's mother, who passed away yesterday.
After gardening (we also repotted some plants and sowed flowers seeds) we had a tea between the trees and it felt special...
