As I travel up and down the east coast of Australia, I am often filled with wonder at the beauty of Australian trees. This is one of my favourites, that we see when stopping off for lunch in a park. I love to gaze at the smoothness of its trunk; devoid of bark and silhouetted against a perfect blue sky it is so beautiful.
And now I am wondering if I will see it many more times, as the trips up north and back again may hopefully be dwindling due to the fact that we have had a potential buyer for our house visit today. If this person decides to buy our house, then we will, one day, travel north and settle there. But I will still try to visit this, my favourite tree.
