A Favourite View
"My favourite view in the whole house, a corner view over my spa tub. This view encourages lots of daily soakings!" These are Desiree's words, and wow, with a tree like this to gaze at, I'd happily be ensconced in the spa tub all day. What a glorious colour! This is a pistache tree and it's leaves were this lovely flaming pink / gold a few weeks ago. It's not a tree I'm familiar with. I guess it likes the mild climate of California rather than the vagaries of English weather!
Desiree says her husband had threatened to rip the tree out, because it doesn't always colour up like this. The tree must have overheard the threat and fearing for it's life, burst forth this autumn like never before. The tree is now saved! Thank goodness, otherwise I'd never have had the pleasure of receiving such a gem!
