The Dragon Tree is an endangered species which produces a bright red resin when the bark is cut. The resin was used for dyeing cloth and it has medicinal properties also. They grow to a great age and the tree at Icod on Tenerife is reputed to be 2000 years old. So in a thousand years or so my Dragon Tree should form a nice focal point in the garden.
The work on the kitchen is progressing with the plastering finished, the electric points all installed, and the horrible horrible blue walls painted over. Outside, the new hot water pipes are in place and the water pump housing has been built.
