Where We Hang The Washing

This is my backyard. The tree stump leaning against the wall is all that is left of a giant Eucalyptus tree that used to stand in the yard. 3 years ago on Christmas Eve it blew down in a storm and was leaning heavily on the rooftop conservatory. Within minutes 5 big burly firemen were chopping it down as it was a risk to life. I loved that tree and its smell, it was so majestic but life goes on and my friend is going to polish the stump and we will turn it into a piece of useful furniture.

This yard gets the sun all afternoon and we installed a water feature so you can sit and relax with the lovely sound of water running from an old amphora into a bowl of pebbles. Ahhh.
