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.

Life’s tough.

Live it while you can.

  1. What’s also interesting in this pic is that all the stages of tree-life are shown. The seedling, the sapling (to the right) and the mature tree (top left). Intentional or serendipitous?

    • I completely missed that, Ad! Jolly nice find. Now I know why you were sent to this planet. Many thanks for your keen eye and kind words. P. 🙂

  2. I’m an eager observer, not least of your work. This isn’t my favourite photo of yours (you have some artistic crackers) but I love the storytelling. You’re like Paul Kelly with an Nikon lens mount. Keep that DMC running.

    • I agree it isn’t my best shot (I figure they can’t all be) but I’m very pleased you feel the story carries it. Thank you for your high praise and highly entertaining puns. 🙂
