Sunday Selections # 211
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** The Elephant’s Child to see more of her wonderful photos.
Andrew often joins in too.
**it's possible EC may not participate this week as she has other things going on.
I usually go with a theme for my Sunday Selections and this week I have more on the cutting down of trees.
When I left them last time, I thought we'd seen the last of the destruction, but sadly that was not so. Later in the week, the cherry picker complete with chainsaw wielding person and chipper returned.
here's a closer look :(
this is all that was left. I was going to bring that long branch home for Angel to scratch on, but I couldn't lift it. I brought home a much smaller piece but he doesn't like the new cut smell.
I like the texture of this bark.
a few lonely pine (pining?) needles
this pile of wood shavings was quite large, I think people took them for their gardens
this is the one I dubbed 'lollipop tree' last time.
it still has a support rope, I hope it is just a forgotten rope, not an indication that this tree will come down too.
look at that texture! enlarging the photo will help.
not much left here for the sulphur crested cockatoos :(
let's look at something more cheerful
Angel watching television
a stuffed tiger living in a small tree behind my flat, look, he's wearing a Richmond footy scarf!
(Hobbes? from Calvin & Hobbes fame?)
a slightly bedraggled teddy residing in a higher branch of the same tree. He's been there since before I came and I've been here three and a half years now.
