Christmas tree thoughts

January 2020

Between Christmas and New Year I had a good rest and recharged my batteries. With this renewed energy I did a big clear out and took piles of stuff to the Recycling Centre.

While there I took a bag of garden refuse to the big garden waste skip. For the first time, I felt utterly shocked by all the Christmas trees tossed at all angles to a height. They looked forlorn and cast away.

As a new decade dawns, with global warming and species extinction made so acute and urgent by the Australian fires, the trees in the skip seemed utterly crackers. I felt compelled to visual representation.
