Bye, Gum!

Gum tree flowers, originally uploaded by sue tortoise.

This is the gum tree that I looked out on from the office window in my previous job. A happy reminder of my visits to Australia and a lovely thing in its own right: with birds in the branches, buds, flowers and gum nuts in season, and the changing light on its pale trunk and its grey-green leaves. I took this photo in May last year.

I’ve missed the tree since I left the job. I popped into the old place today, to catch up with my friends. The weather was lovely, the people were pleased to see me.

The tree was gone.
