You can say that it is a long time when it sprouts, began to grow. It has been a great fortune because it could have been poured by a person or animal to eat or a fire burn. But it got bigger ...

@Jypyä Pop: grew bigger and thicker !! If it had a voice, it would perhaps tell us !

It is beautiful! I can just imagine that it is very old. I love the bright green leaves.

9 Jan 2019 8:29pm

@Elaine Hancock: The green leaves turn into a very dark shade as they grow. The best part is that when there is a strong wind, the leaves keep quivering but the branches and twiogs not much ! It is fascinating to watch this !
