Hello Nobu!
This tree is fabulous! Is it possible to grow this tree as bonsai?
Have a beautiful Sunday
Kind regards,
Léia :-)

I love crushing the leaves in my hand and lifting them close to my face, enjoying the fragrance. I always think of the Japanese historical saga, Taiheiki when I come across these trees because one of the main characters was named Kusunoki.

Hi , Nobu
It has been several days since you did not post;We had bad news from Japan on TV informations, that's why I'm worrying .I hope everything is alright for you, and that you'll be back soon.

Evergreens are great, because they always look fresh.
Like Malyss I hope you're OK nobu, but I think it's fine not to post every single day. I feel it makes blogging more relaxed.
