Orange Touches

Time to make a few decisions about which trees to keep and which will have to go. Orange tape for the ones we want to keep:
Which is as many of the biggest ones as possible. Marking the pink ones wasn't fun, because they are the ones which will have to go.

An orangey fungus bulging out of a stringybark (Eucalyptus obliqua):

Not very clear as I had to zoom in to see it, the orangey breast of a robin:
It is either a flame robin or a scarlet robin, but I didn't get a close enough look to be sure.

Lastly, measuring 20 metres from the property across the road, to mark our property boundary for the electricity suppliers:
Nothing orange about the picture, but the boundary was marked with an orange stake.


  1. Hard decisions about trees, I'm sure, but a necessary task.

  2. Having seen film of forest fires, it seems a wise move not to have trees too close to the house, painful as it is to chop them down. Maybe in time the wood can be put to use in the garden?
