A day late, but I haven't been up for posting.
This is our lovely giant Golden Ash which we see the moment we step out the front door. It's on the cusp of losing all of it's leaves, but in the meantime it's providing lots of shade on a 32 degree day.
A garden designer came to our house yesterday and commented on how much larger this tree was than the others in the street. It must have been a particularly well-manured bit of CSIRO sheep paddock, where our house is.
Thanks everyone for your best wishes. I really appreciate them.
