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…
