Hugging trees

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!
