Arbutus unedo and a sea of red marbles...

I’ve mentioned this Arbutus unedo (Strawberry Tree) growing at the park near us before, I love this tree. It’s especially wonderful to walk by on a grey rainy day such as this. How often do you come upon a tree with a sea of red marbles underneath?

Not often enough.

And it never ceases to thrill me that you get the fruit and flowers at the same time. And in so many different colors!

Because this tree is right at the edge of the park, not really in the park and not really in anyone’s garden, I like to pretend it’s mine. Ah come on…you do that too, right?
