Today I went to visit my old professor at the university of Western Australia. It is Western Australia’s oldest university & has the most beautiful grounds, filled with huge trees of all sorts – my favourites and others. So you can imagine – yes. Photos. And oh dear. I took over 200 – in 2 hours!
I can’t post them all, & many aren’t suitable anyway (rain is not good for little cameras – or Keiras!), but even so – there are too many for one post. so I am going to attempt to group them.
As it was raining, some of the photos were hurried & blurred. But many were OK, though I fear there’s not too many that are brilliant. However, even in this first post, there are different trees.
First – along the river. The university is on the banks (sort of) of the Swan River, and I parked in the Matilda Bay carpark. The city was barely visible through the mist of rain:
trees against the river:
Peppermint trees and a tall gum:
Moreton bay figs in the rain:
Then the area between the road and the university, filled with all sorts of trees – almost wilderness:
These two are trees I haven’t come across in mtlawleyshire, but of course, the university is a long way from my little shire 🙂 I love the colour of these and I really will, soon – I promise – get hold of a reference book so I can figure out what trees these are
The first of the next two photos is, I think, a stringy bark, as the bark hangs off in strips like strings. They can be very untidy!
and look – more rain coming:
I will do the next post tomorrow – in the grounds of the university. And this is despite the rain. And no – no kitty for this part of the post. How can there be? And the end of this post, as far as the pictures tell the story, I am still at the university 🙂
