    Talking The trees are watching:::

    Went for a wander down the driveway this arvo and couldn't help but notice I was being watched (and not just by the chickens who thought I might have treats for them).

    Gee, that's one quite angry tree! Have you been threatening it with the chainsaw again Dave?

    It reminded me of this tree I photographed last year, not quite so angry, but definitely scary!

    Well I have been considering mixing up some poison for the weeds...

    Now that's a pretty amazing tree.

    Sounds like our driveway after dark ;-)

    (closest street light is way down in the bottom of the valley - a good 800m as the crow flies)

    Good point - maybe it's not scary but just an Ent.
