Tree Tuesday

Our tree this week comes with my apologies. Lofty sent these photos in at the end of July and I misplaced them. Thankfully, they are now on the found list.  I’m very glad because the series is beautiful, starting with closeup shots of new growth and shifting the perspective until we finally see the magnificent adult tree.

…a series of shots of a popular beach side tree in our southern city, the Norfolk Island Pine.

Thanks so much for sharing, Lofty.

    So this is the Norfolk Island pine. It’s a beauty. I must say while I’ve listened to Dreamworld by Midnight Oil quite a few times, this is the first time I see a pictures of Norfolk Island pines.

    The resin in the first picture looks a bit alien.

    Wow, that second photo caught me completely by surprise, and I mean that in a good way. It’s so odd and alien -- could be a landscape, could be a detail, it’s just so indefinite until you look closer. Wonderful series!

    The close up pictures of bark texture were taken because I knew that Caine liked that sort of thing, then of course the cancer got her. Anyway, glad to see them up.

    I’ve only seen Norfolk Island Pines as container plants, so this was a treat.
    However, I must be off!
