Features and characters of the individual

in a small town garden, this beautiful tree is home to many birds. It gives rhythm to the seasons with its flowers, fruits and leaves. It offers privacy to the inhabitants of the building and neighbours by masking the view of the buildings opposite. It provides shade and coolness during the hot summer months. At a height of about two metres, it splits in two and then splits again. Right in front of my bedroom window, I rejoice every day at the chance to be able to admire it.
