Featured in Trees Beautiful Trees June 2011

I just love these magnificent Gums, so iconically part of the Australian landscape. This was taken early morning, in country south-west Victoria, just out of Hamilton.

‘Of beauty rich and rare’ …..a line taken from the first verse of the Australian National Anthem.

Australians all let us rejoice,
For we are young and free;
We’ve golden soil and wealth for toil;
Our home is girt by sea;
Our land abounds in nature’s gifts
Of beauty rich and rare;
In history’s page, let every stage
Advance Australia Fair.

‘A man should hear a little music, read a little poetry, and see a fine picture every day of his life, in order that worldly cares may not obliterate the sense of the beautiful which God has implanted in the human soul’

Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
