Gardening and other adventures in sub-tropical Brisbane
Sunday, 15 May 2011
I was collecting the last few items of washing off the line tonight when I noticed the view over my neighbour's Copperpod (Peltophorum pterocarpum). I am usually cursing this tree as its seedlings pop up by the hundred in my garden. But tonight, its pearly pink pods provided a beautiful foreground to the rising moon, reminding me of a Japanese watercolour or an illustration by Edmund Dulac or Arthur Rackham.
