Welcome back to Sunday Selections!
This once-a- week-meme was originally begun by Kim of Frog Ponds Rock, as a way to showcase some of the many photos we all take, but don't get around to showing on our blogs.
The rules are very simple:-
1. post photos of your choice, old or new, under the Sunday Selections title
2. link back to me, River, somewhere in your post
3. leave me a comment so that I know you've joined in and can come over and see what you've posted.
4. hop on over to TheElephant’s Child to see more of her wonderful photos.
Kath and Andrew often join in as well, although Kath has been quite busy lately and unable to join us.
There are several other participants now though:
Jackie K at WorkingThrough It
Gillie at RandomThoughts From Abroad
I usually go with a theme for my Sunday Selections and this week I'm showing you the gum trees I walk through on my way to the Tai Chi classes.
Gum Trees for Marie, in Sweden.
this is the path I follow through the trees
as I enter the path, on my right is one of the biggest and oldest trees. This is the middle section just over halfway up......
...and this is the base. You can't really tell how big it is from the photo, but I think it would take four of me with arms outstretched to reach around it.
on the other side of that same tree is this lopped branch. See the knot hole up there?
I heard buzzing as I walked by, so zoomed in....
can you see the tiny yellow specks in there? Bees!! There were so many, buzzing busily, entering and leaving, a marvellous hidey hole for their hive.
some of the younger trees off to the left....
and the road is visible too.
the end of the path leads over a little bridge. There is nothing under the bridge so I'm not sure why it is there, perhaps there used to be a creek. On the left there you see a car in the carpark of the Community building I am headed for.
and here it is. Fullarton Community Centre, a wonderful old home, one of the originals in the area I believe, left to the community with its surrounds, to be used by the community, for the community, with repairs to guttering and trim well underway. Inside is a small library and several rooms used for various activities such as Tai Chi, Yoga, seniors exercise, Reiki, and a few other things.
I've passed the front porch and I'm headed down the side to the newer brick extension at the back, you can just see the edge on the left. The section with the blue blind is the small library.
I have a photo of the carpark area, but it refuses to load, so you don't get to see it.
I'll be walking through the carpark area, accessed from the footpath, in the coming winter months when it may be too muddy to walk the path through the trees.
