Life in Tasmania's Huon Valley, by a blow-in from the mainland
Sunday, May 30, 2010
This photo was taken for my friend Ingrid, a tree-hugger from way back. The tree I am hugging is an old Silver Wattle with a trunk covered in lichen. It's one of the many trees we have growing on our land. The Silver Wattle has tiny blue-green leaves and is one of the shorter under-story trees in the local native rainforest. In late winter or early spring I expect great clouds of yellow fluffy flowers to appear... along with severe hayfever!
Escaped Sydney in 2010 for a piece of paradise in Tasmania's Huon Valley. I'm a keen walker, remote worker, incompetent gardener, Bernese Mountain Dog owner, fan of almost anything German (food, language, cars, beer), amateur linguist, chook fancier, childfree.
