Capturing Patriotism

Christmas present from one of my Homies (House mates!). It is a Yellowood, which is our National Tree! OK, so I am cheating saying that - our National Tree is the Real Yellowood, while this is actually an Outeniqua Yellowood (close enough in my opinion!!)
I am really stoked with the cool present, now just hope I can keep it alive (my fingers are not very green...)
Interesting point, the Big Tree on the way from PE to Plett is this same species, so one day my kids should have an awesome tree in their garden (first I need the garden and the kids though...)

  1. We also have a yellowood in a pot in our garden and it's getting to the stage of having to plant it... gotta choose the site well because as you said, it can get very big!
