Meeting Jade Emperor - An Offering

On meeting the Jade Emperor, with
all due respect, one who has everything,
an offering of a swamp cypress was made.
He loved the brand new cones,
and the colour, of course...

I am neither Emperor or Empress
but would I love to but have but one of those cones from such a magnificent cypress..Lois
Monika....Too tall for me to plant as it grows to 60ft and is best planted in boggy areas (Port Melbourne is too dry I fear)
I read in my gardening book that the Swamp Cypress is the source of the oil for White Ant repellant...so it is not just on this earth for its beauty alone...

Makes one think why we need nature to survive...destroy it and we too are destroyed.

Agreed Lois. I am so pleased you have provided this information. Yes, we do need nature more and more each day. That is amazing.
