I was walking in the sunshine at University of Sydney with my little grand daughter who needed a short break from church in the old Geology building.
We came across a tree (pictured) with beautiful patterned bark, soft and flakey, and gentle spindly branches that were almost silhouetted against the blue sky.
I laid my hand against the trunk and felt its warmth and encouraged Maddison to do likewise. She reached across and rested the palm of her hand on the tree.
I stepped back to photograph the tree which had won my heart and as we began to move on I noticed a tag or label nailed to it.
