Monday has been an extension of our weekend – cleaning up after Aaron the Arborist who gives the word extension new meaning – and the expression ‘Geewillingkinwinkings’!
He’s trimming the dangerous branches from two of our very old Red Gums.
Aaron was only about 20 metres high!!!
He carefully dropped tonnes of wood and didn’t damage one grasstree!
Sad to see the trees diminish, but over a few years several branches weighing hundreds of kilos have fallen on our driveway. Other branches fell into the bush damaging trees and bushes on the way. Even in death wood has a beauty that lives on. This is a pen and ink sketch of a beautiful piece of deadwood I came across at Wheatley, WA. I enjoyed a peaceful, relaxing hour, or so, in the bush sitting on my fishing stool doing this – a lovely memory!
I’m sure there were more ‘Wow’s in the past week but I’m short on time – but I just have to mention discovering Coco J Ginger’s blog and this: Your Little Sister -powerful writing – discovered by following up a ‘like’!
I hope your week had memorable moments of the best kind too and you’re more than welcome to share them here.
