There are more than 700 species of Eucalyptus, mostly native to Australia, and a very small number are found in adjacent areas … Species of Eucalyptus are cultivated throughout the tropics and subtropics including the Americas, Europe, Africa, the Mediterranean Basin, the Middle East, China and the Indian Subcontinent. (from the Wikipedia article on Eucalyptus)

On the steep hillside behind my friend’s summer house in Nelson is a gnarly old eucalypt – a riot of intricately entwined forms.
