Winter tree

0608 winter tree

This tree has local heritage listing - it's enormous. In autumn, the leaves below form a thick carpet that delights small children as they fall and toss and play. Now in winter, against the grey light of early morning, it seems more remote; but still beautiful, an intricate tracery of twigs and branches against a monochrome sky. With so many local trees being eucalypts and thus evergreen, this one offers a different view.
