My second favourite tree


I remember when my mum bought this eucalyptus. I don't think I was even ten years old. Every week I would go outside with my mum and stand beside it to see how much it had grown. It started off smaller than me and then slowly reached the same height and grew and grew until it surpassed me by many metres. It is really tall now. It is still an exotic wonder to me. I almost expect to see a Koala sitting in it when I look out the window.

I'm glad to say that I was fortunate enough to always stay one step ahead of the eucalyptus tree. i often came into your garden to measure myself - and I'm still growing, I'm glad to say!
