Dead Tree

I am seeing more dead trees around the property. Some the cows have ringbarked looking for roughage, a couple the big white cockies have done the same thing to but they look for grubs.
Some have died due to drought.
It is a sad sight but it costs money to put fences around trees to stop the cows.
It takes years for trees to grow to the height of some of them.
I dont know what the answer is. Vegans would tell you not to have cows, but how would the world survive if we didnt produce milk and meat. Humans are omnivorous, not vegetarians, and even some vegetarians eat some form of protein.
Enjoy my tree with its branches against the sky, dont worry about my thoughts, today I have been to a friends funeral.

Your picture says it all. Death is part of the journey, but sometimes it happens too soon. My condolences on the death of your friend. It's happening more these days as our peer group succumb to serious illnesses, but as a young woman said to me last night, it's happening to people in my age group too.
