Day 197 of 2020

Another drizzly grey day.
This photo has no significance for many, except family members. To the left what used to be Grandpa's garage, but for a long time (since Mum and Dad built garaging close to the house) was/has been Dad's workshop. To the right the 'big shed'. Dad bought this shed on site about an hour's drive away and spent many a month dismantling it to re-build here.
The tree centre stage is the 'old chestnut tree'. I think Grandpa planted it, but at least, it's been there forever. 
What is most startling about the photo is the bare hill top beyond the trees. Until recently a beautiful 'hedging' of all sorts of trees,  after the original trees of my childhood were replaced. Too big and tangled, limbs forever coming down, they needed to go. There will be more trees planted along there but of course it will take a few years for them to get any size on them.

See you tomorrow,


  1. Cycle of life even for trees isn't it Raewyn, they grow get too big or old and then new ones come in their place.

  2. I love the history of the buildings and I really love that tree!

  3. Interesting to read about your history..
    Love the tree.

  4. It is always a shame to see trees go but when it is necessary there is no choice.


Thanks for stopping by to see what I've been up to today.
