Number 13 in my 365 project
looking for the gifts in the present, each day for a year.
A gnarly old lady Casuarina obesa on my road. I know her well, and have seen her survive some horrendous storms, with only minor limb loss. I have held my breath in anxiety when the shire crews come through with their scrape-every -roadside -clean of messy vegetation machines. Every tree on my road is precious, and I greet them with gladness each day they are still standing.
This fine, if a bit frayed old lady is my gift for the day.
