Death by chainsaw.....!


I know that sounds a little dramatic :) but, if Cleve Backster is correct in his research that 'plants are aware of each other, mourn death, strongly dislike people who kill plants carelessly'.. then Mr. B you have a 'shovel' load of bad karma coming your way! While it's possible that this pile of ground up vegetation may not be one of the many trees cut down (check out the comparison in size of the men to the 100 year old tree they're chopping down) to make way for the hideous Elizabeth Quay project. The wonderful old Moreton Bay Fig trees on the other side of the road must be both mourning and breathing a sigh at their lucky escape! You've seen the pictures of the beautiful Supreme Court Gardens and Government house..which side of the road do you prefer? Sorry about the rant, it's been a while :)) Hope you have a peaceful Thursday, take care and stay safe.....

  2. This sad situation really does deserve a 'rant'. Makes me angry every time I see this sort of thing. You have a good day, Grace. Time for a cup of tea in that nice kitchen of yours :).

  3. It's more than just sad; it's a tragedy when this occurs. I've seen it time and time again and what replaces the tree can't even compare with the trees.

    Haven't been commenting lately because of a real pain in ithe neck. Meds not working yet. Computer and keyboard posture difficult, but I'll be back--don't go away!

  8. At least you've produced a photographic record. I think that's important.

  9. I can't imagine destroying such aged beauty. It can never be replaced. Too bad we can replace the people whose greed drives them to do such a thing.

  10. While it defies logic, I believe trees feel pain and have some sort of brain somewhere.

  11. If you live out in nature much you get to watch things happen like how a small tree grows up and kills all the thousands of little plants by shading them out. So trees are naturally killers as well and probably don't shed many trees, just leaves! lol

  12. This is a monstrous act and you have every right to rant - and rave - Grace! And they dare to call it 'progress'! What goes around comes around!

  16. Argh, things like this sadden and madden! I hope Mr. B gets his back in the end. I do love that gorgeous tree - nature's a true artist. (Oh, that's for your hilarious 'Mikhail' comment on the ballerina shot - wonderful chuckle when I saw it at end of a long workday!)
