Dogwood

Depending on interpretation, dogwoods are classed in up to ten subgenera.

The Australian Dogwood (Cornus canae) is a particularly resilient member of the genus.

It can generally be distinguished by its inconspicuous flowers

and distinctive

bark.

The dribble of doom …

This little tree did it hard.

Drought killed it outside while critters gnawed within.

Curling bark and chomp trails tell the story.

Now a nice council person has sprayed the tree with the yellow spot of death.

Soon, a woodsperson will be along to cut it down.

Its replacement already incubates at bottom left.

To the right, what might have been.

Life’s tough.

Live it while you can.

I asked the grocer

why he was selling just

USA

lemons.

He said the sun had

fried all the flowers in

Queensland.

A melancholy

Eureka.
