My Katsura Tree


Our landscape is smothered in reds, oranges and all shades in between
but we have a beautiful yellow tree in the middle of the garden.....



have a lookee...!




It was planted over 10 years ago
before I was a twinkle in my Dad's eyes...


I love this tree because....


I can rollover and over 
as I look up through the yellow umbrella....
such ecstasy!

    1. The tree is special for us because the other trees mainly maples are so much larger and block out the light.
