We have a eucalyptus in our garden. Its beautiful if a little scary because its growing so quickly. It was a twig when we moved in five years ago and now its towering over everything else. I love its little red leaves that fall from among the green in the middle of summer - like its dictating its own autumn.

Ah, is it a paper bark or maybe a majestic grey gum, beautiful trees to touch, you can feel the life miving through them with the palm of you hand,

nice texture...
could be me being smutty but it looks vaguely erotic :)

That's like our arbutus trees here - they shed their bark and are very very smooth...and a rich red in color
