The Eucalyptus Tree
peels off the old layer
growing a new one
and lets some new leaves peek
through it’s beautiful smooth bark.
In Greece, the eucalyptus is regarded as a blessed tree because it never dies [centenarian tree].
Happy Sunday & Happy Easter*!
*Ours is end of April

How wonderful about the eucalyptus!
I remember them growing out of mountain sides in the Andes. As they grew, they would straighten up.
The banana trees did that too.
There were thousands of both!
You photos of the new life are very sweet, appealing!
Thank you dahling Marina!
How wonderful to watch them grow!
The new leaves did look sweet popping out of the smooth bark.
Thank you, Dahling Resa!!!
As eucalyptus trees come from Australia, the Greek tradition of their being blessed and supposedly never dying can’t be more that a few centuries old. Some traditions get established even more quickly.
Because of their greek name I used to think they are a native tree in Greece, but it seems they were introduced by a botanist (Orphanides) in the 1800s. So you’re right about traditions. 😉
Exquisite palette and composition, as always! Very sensory posting. Happy Easter, my dear friend! Hugs + Hugs 🙂
Aw, thank you, my dearest Mary Jo! I like the ‘sensory’!
I hope you enjoyed a beautiful Easter. I am collecting wishes for when our comes (May 2… too far this year!).
Many many more hugs to you and 😘😘😘
I actually know this about the different dates for Easter! 🙂
A lot of these here in Southern California. Occasionally there are some worries, since there instances of these larger versions falling over onto well travelled roadways. But they are planted especially because of their fast growth.
They are beautiful trees aren’t they? Over here our trees usually have to go deep to find water, hence their roots are very strong, so there would rarely be such a problem.
Happy Tuesday, Art 🙏
Lovely! They are great trees, aren’t they?
Oh, yes they are!!
Thank you, my 🐉 friend!
I love this Marina, so beautiful I can almost smell the scent of the Eucalyptus, I hope y tI it had a wonderful day !

It makes beautiful abstract patterns is the process of pealing. I love the photos.
Thank you, my friend. Its bark is amazing, you’re right. And this is focusing on just one part. You can really get carried away!
Happy Monday, Tim!
This is beautiful, Marina… and I could just see you painting it!
It is, isn’t it? Thank you, kind lady! It’s so beautiful that I wouldn’t want to paint it. I’d spoil it!😉
Happy Monday, Dale! 🤗😘🎼😘🤗
Oh come on now. You’d do a lovely version of it, I’ve zero doubt.
Happy Easter Monday, Marina! 💞😘
Well… on the ‘absurd’ style! 😉🤣
Happy Easter Monday to you!!!!
(I have to wait a bit before mine! 😉)
Hah! Funny lady!
I was wondering when the Greek Easter was this year. I should have realised it was not the same this time.
It’s usually just a week apart but this year it’s quite a bit!!! 💖❤💖🌻🧡💖
Yeah, so weird!
A beautiful tree Marina… Its like a watercolour painting all by itself… Love the bark and the colour of those new leaves..
Happy Easter my friend ❤ Have a wonderful Easter Monday too ❤
Thank you, my dearest Sue! Yes, it really is like a watercolor painting, you’re right and those abstract patterns on its bark are so beautiful.
I hope you had a wonderful Easter. I will dearly keep your wishes for May 3rd.
Happy Easter Monday and week ahead! ❤😘❤
You too ❤ ❤ ❤
and some lovely abstracts it paints on the bark. The young leaves are beautifully bronzed – have never noticed that before. Happy Easter Marina and bless you!
The smooth bark of the Eucalyptus is perfect for abstracts! Thank you, my dear Laura. I hope you had a beautiful Easter and will keep your wishes for end of April, early May, when our Easter is. 😉😘😘 Happy Monday and week ahead!
oh yes, I forget our same festival/ different calendar dates 😉
I wonder why… after all we’re all on Gregorian calendar. 😉
?something to do with Rome and Greece!!
Yes, I know! Still… 😉
Wonderful images to match your words … Happy Easter and will wish again I believe on May 3rd.
Thank you, my dear friend!
And thank you for the wishes, which I will keep anyway for then! 😉🐣
Hope you had a beautiful Easter!
I LOVE eucalyptus trees, they’re that much more special to me because we cannot grow them in our climate. Their smell is divine and I always associate them with koalas – two excellent characteristics in addition to their beauty. Wonderful images.
I have heard they thrive in Australia, and koalas surely know how to choose the perfect tree! 😉 Thank you, my dear Tina. So happy my images evoked fond memories. 🙏😘
Thank you. Happy Easter to you.
Sending sunny Easter Greetings to you, Marina! I love the blessed Eucalyptus tree for it gives healing to all who smell its scent.
Awww… warmest greetings to you from across the ocean, my dearest friend. Ah, yes, it’s healing scent… Such a beautiful tree. Enjoy a wonderful week ahead and… enjoy a wonderul Day too!! 😉🎂🎁🎉 Love and extra hugs your way! 💝💖💝
