the tree sprite

Went on an outing with my eighty-four year old mother to walk in Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park and photographed her in front of this old gum … do you see the face peering over her shoulder? With her bit of collected wood as a ‘walking stick’ I thought she looked as if she had wandered out of a secret door in its trunk, they look like two old friends and guardians of the bush. For a bit of fun I gave the photograph the ‘old-fashioned’ look. She loved it and we laughed uproariously as it really epitomises who she is.

      Yes and her mind is sharp her favourite past-time is cryptic crosswords which I can’t do at all and she polishes off in no time!
