Earring Tree

Earring Tree

Do you remember the tree about which I posted last year? A Tree With a Story
Someone has put, what resemble dangly “earrings”, on its branches!
Unfortunately, there are fewer leaves on the tree this season. I do hope the tree can survive both the injury to its trunk and the humiliation. I think it even looks a little aghast. Don’t you?

Not Exactly Wildlife

While visiting a neighbouring town, I spied a display of whirligigs and spinners outside a shop as I explored the quaint downtown area. I stopped to admire the bright colours of this peacock, though it doesn’t hold a candle to its real-life counterparts.

Walking further, I came to a park. There is a man-made stream running through, and a pond, with an assortment of ducks and geese making themselves at home. They can’t really be classified as wild, as they seem quite unruffled by the presence of the people nearby. This particular pond used to be home to some beautiful swans. Unfortunately on this day, they were nowhere to be found. I’ll post more interesting bits about this park in a future post.
