The most amazing tree for me is the ghost gum. I don’t know if you get them here but we do at home in WA.
I think if you are going to hug a tree this is the one. The energy you feel is amazing. The grace and splendour of this regal tree – it is so smooth to run your hands down, you won’t get a splinter. I’m not a hippy (would love to have been) but this is the tree to be in love with. We pay $100 or $1000 for things in auctions and antique shops for 100 year old things but we chop these trees down and disregard them – I can only imagine the stories they could tell. My ode to the mighty ghost gum.
