Sit a bit under the gum trees

.

The pair of benches looks like they have a secluded spot all to themselves.


But from this perspective, you can see the apartment buildings of Jerusalem right across the road.


As you probably guessed from the middle photo with the tall eucalyptus trees, we are in the Australian section of the Jerusalem Botanical Gardens.

I loved seeing Australian trees all over Israel (and elsewhere). Perfect climate, perfect rainfall.. Made me proud.

We have the same trees here! I understand they're a type of Eucalyptus. They aren't native to southern California, but one sees them around and there are several at Hahamongna.

That would be nice to have - we can only get continental sections inside a greenhouse!

Actually, when I saw the first photo I thought it was a photo from Australia. Fooled me!
