Australia's National Tree Day

Our 'tree day' today is Australia's largest community tree planting and nature care event, according to Speak for the Trees website. For school age children, around 2500 schools within Australia, will have already participated with planting seedling trees in their own school grounds on Friday 27th July, as part of Schools Tree Day.

..a wonderful angophora tree, down by the lake






and while I was standing there yesterday admiring this tree, a beautiful spot of colour alighted.  It's a galah (pronounce that gull-ah)

I agree with Nadege, Australia has wonderful trees. That was one of the first thing I noticed when I was in Perth for the first time. I enjoyed your tree pictures. The quote is very well said.
