Yesterday was a Public Holiday and we went down to the Botanic Gardens. The weather was warm and sunny, the gardens were bright with blossom and loud with birdsong. There are a lot of large trees in the Botanics which you can stand under and watch all the birds flying around, hopping from branch to branch, they somehow seem not to notice you're there. Apparently 50 species of bird were seen in the Botanic Gardens last year.
The photo is of an ash tree, which we saw walking back from the Gardens, the light in it isn't very good, but its one of my favourite trees at the time of year, it looks quite bizarre, don't you think?
