Thunder Down Under: Old Peppermint Tree

Painting by Shirley Deane/Midyett

Text by Vic Midyett

There is a very old Peppermint tree not far from where we live, in Fremantle, Western Australia. Shirley decided to paint part of it. The painting is about 2' x 4':
    Our editor reacted to seeing the photograph: “What a work of love and perfect artistry! Thank you for sharing this wonderful work, which will astonish Moristotle & Co.’s visitors.”
    Shirley & I could only say, “Goodness!” We hope others respond similarly.

  1. Does it smell like Peppermint? It is a great picture. I've never seen a Peppermint tree before.

  2. Thanks. Yes Ed. The leaves smell like peppermint when you crush them between your fingers. They become a very old sturdy tree.
