Have I mentioned how much I love trees lately?
It’s late spring here in South East Queensland, which also means its storm season. There’s lovely bushland near my house and, in the past week, the combination of rain and wind has stripped the scribbly gums of their winter bark. I took my phone when I walked my dog today to get some shots before the bark dries and blows away. I also snapped a couple of other trees that grabbed my attention.
Random fact: the scribbly gum gets its name from the markings made on its bark by a surprisingly artistic grub (worm).
Too true! When you’ve spent a couple of weeks in Singapore your eyes drink in the sight of trees, trees , trees on the drive home from the airport. We live in a truly beautiful part of this state.
Loved this post Paula. I love trees too and often walk about where I live taking photos of all my favourite ones. Winter or summer, they are all wonderful!
Thanks! Being away recently made me appreciate the beauty outside my front door even more. 🙂
