While taking a stroll one evening, my husband and I spotted a huge, amazing gum tree.
I love big old gum trees! Especially the spooky looking ones, with trunks that look like morphing human bodies, branches that look like twisted arms and legs, and bark so pale and smooth like human skin.
They stand, majestic and magnificent, alive with daunting presence.
No wonder there are folklores of magical trees; as I stood in its shadow to take the photo, I almost felt I should ask it for permission.
