Some of you may have seen photos of a Giant rainforest tree in my portfolio …a favourite old friend from my youth …struck by lightening in recent years …it stands still …but dead.
Some tall treeferns that grew around it were also hit by the lightening …and stand leafless around the dead giant, like sentinels .
I recently visited the site and discovered that a seed has taken root in one of the damp tree fern trunks…..and as it appears to be a young Eucalypt . The only Eucalypt tree in the direct area …is the now dead giant.
Its lovely to think that perhaps …the seed fell from the dying elder and now attempts a rebirth of sorts .Not sure how or if it will survive …..but Id like hope it will.
