The 'green lungs of the city'..



 Described as 'the green lungs of the city' the trees here provide shade in the landscaped park incorporated into the design of 51 storey high skyscraper Central Park in the heart of the CBD.. but not for much longer! I took these shots a few days ago and the leaves on the plane trees are in full end of autumn mode about to drop a ton of leaves onto Hay Street. I love when that happens but then again I don't have to sweep them up :) I'm guesstimating that the next time I'm here in this spot there will be magnificent tall naked trees looking back at me.. click! Happy Thursday, take care and stay safe.. P.s. where has the week gone!

  3. Sooooo as is the year progresses, you get back into winter and we enter the nasty summer. I just found out where my reading list went!!! I've been so busy with life that I haven't been able to look at all the extra blogger gadgets.....and then I found out where my reading list went!! Anyhow, have fun. I know I'd be out everyday enjoying that lovely weather:)

  4. Those leaves look like they've hung on as long as they possibly could. There is just something about a bare tree that has it's own beauty. Let's face it, trees are just beautiful things no matter how they are dressed.

  11. Your photos just go to show that cities do have trees, sometimes lots of trees especially in Canada.

  15. I know we are supposed to love our native evergreen trees, but for a city, you can't beat foreign deciduous trees.

  16. Neat buildings. Trees here are finally full of leaves. The flowering ones have lost most of their flowers and the streets look almost like they are snow covered. Air still smells spring time flowery fresh. Much better/nicer than Florida and all the air pollution.

  17. It feels odd to think of autumn in the semi-tropics and in June. Around here, people are sitting around waiting for the oven to be turned on.

  18. Your winter is coming closer as I can see at the changing colours of the trees. Get your warm clothes from the closet :)

  22. Two wonderful images, Grace !
    I like the contrast between the skyscrapers and the trees, and yes, autumn colours are strange for me now :)

  24. I´m so not a fan of naked trees, Grace... Hope you are prepared for winter, have you been to ALDI to get that snow gear? ;-)

  25. I think that sometimes our city planners forget how important trees are to a city - they are, as you suggest, literally the lungs of the city. Whew, now I'm out of breath! :)

  26. I hate to see those leaves go. But we're emerging into summer so I can celebrate that for a while.
