some trees


I don't know what Europeans call these trees. Anaglyph might, polymath that he is.

Of course, the Lia Pootah people would have had their own word.

What a lovely, haunting picture. It gives me a delightful gothic heroine in gossamer white feeling.

I know just what you mean. And the next day had an amzing blue cloudless sky.

Haunting is the word, especially once one clicks through the Lia Pootah people link.

In Amerikkka, we call these trees dead

I want to frame this one and give it to my friend. Her home is done in a black, white & forest green motif. Very stark and very plain. It's lovely and it makes me sort of sad.

I'm saving the link for when I get home from WORK! :)

In America we call trees like this "kindling in the way of the new ATV trail".

All of you are wrong. In America, we call it toilet paper.

hereT: Finally on saturday we got a government who will say sorry to the original people of this land. A muted hooray, as this is shamefully long overdue. Here is a good article about the Stolen Generation, and John Howard's refusal to say sorry. Our new PM Kevin Rudd (Kevin '07) will make that his first action in Parliament - saying sorry to the Stolen Generation.

malach: That's why in your horror movies the Beast always returns for one last bite. You are too quick to call things dead.

sara sue: Send me an email address to [gingerstick at gmail dot com] and i will send you a jPeg you can have printed for her.

colonel: Oh dear.

cuntie: Oh dearie me.

Sara Sue said...

Oh Cissy, seriously?? That would be awesome ... please make sure you sign it in some way, ok? (((HUGS)))

Cissy Strutt said...

Malach stole my gag.

Sorry I'm late. Up here we call them there trees "leafless."

Cissy Strutt said...

anaglyph: Next time, quick sticks.

catalyst: I'm almost sorry I asked the question.
