We have a rather spectacular monolith in our yard.
Looming up iinto the winter sky – looks its best against a vibrant blue Queensland winter day.
The spectacular orange is the Orange Trumpet Vine not an unusual vine at all in this neck of the woods.. It is the vine that is beautiful, not so much the tree that it covers.
It always seems to bloom just in time for our sons birthday in June (which as always been nice when we have a party or get together here) and peaks about July.
For a number of years we have all said ‘that tree just has to go’. The tree is a gum and way too close to the house. The tree has been pruned back a number of times and now of course doesn’t grow too well,
So while the winter view is spectacular, the rest of the year it’s a bit ho-hum - the snubbed branches and minimal leaf growth not very inspiring.
It is way too close to the house. Too close to the drains, the roof, the verandah.
One year that tree just has to go. Maybe next year. The last of the winter vine.
Cheers for now
