Something very sad happened on Saturday.

I got home from a run to the sound of chainsaws in the empty school yard behind our house…a few hours later all of the gum trees were gone!  Apparently they were dying and were a real danger.

I can’t tell you how many days we have woken to noisy corellas, cockatoos or galahs gathered in the trees behind our house yelling to each other raucously – where will they go to now? 

The sense of peace I get looking up into the branches of the huge gums is something that I will really miss.

A beautiful Winter sunset but still…no treeline…
