Divinity at the library

DAY 159 (11 SEPTEMBER) – Cedar of the Himalaya (Cedrus deodara) (Farnham, UK)

Sounds a bit pretentious claiming that I’ve found a Cedar of the Himalaya in Farnham Library gardens. But so claims my trusty plant identification site. The name comes from the Sanskrit ‘devadaru’ meaning ‘wood of the gods’. In India it’s worshipped as a divine tree. And you can see what they mean. I couldn’t stop looking at it.
