A Giant Red Wood

growing happily in the

Geelong Botanic Gardens


This year marks 150 years since it was planted

A Giant Red Wood plantation at…





I have read of a similar planting of Red Woods

in the nearby Otway Ranges…


…however, as yet I have not sighted these trees.

I have been to Forrest several times

but not since I read of

the Red Woods.








My first Cosmic challenge

Even though it was mid-June there was unexpected,

from everyone’s point of view,

snow falling on

Canada’s Columbia Icefield

before and during our visit.

Whilst snow is not unheard of in Australia,

it was the first time I had ever experienced

falling snow.


These are more like winter woodland scenes…
