This isn’t the post I had planned for X but today, two beautiful gum trees across the road from my office window, were cut down.
The block of land has been empty for months. Yesterday, workmen arrived and pulled down buildings and fences.
This morning, a guy walked over with a chain saw and in minutes, this was the result.
So today, “X is for cut” and for these ex trees, that will no longer be in the view from my desk.
I was planning for today’s post to be about lighthouses, even had photos ready to upload.
But I went for a beach walk this morning, in the sunshine. A perfect way to start the four day Easter weekend. I noticed the autumn leaves.
Even though it is two years since we moved to Tasmania, my “northern hemisphere brain” still makes subconscious connections, so for me, Easter is Spring, daffodils, new shoots on the trees.
Although my head knows the seasons are opposite, sometimes I am consciously taken aback by that fact. Just like this morning.
Here are photos from my walk.
And of course, some gum leaves.
