I went for a long Sunday morning amble through the Cairns Botanical Gardens. They have massive trees that are undoubtedly a gazillion years old or maybe not. Maybe half a gazillion. This one, in the pic above, while not one of the prettier ones, impressed me the most by its sheer girth and strength. It had a look that said ‘I’ve been standing here longer than any of your buggers have been alive and I’m not about to move or change for you or anyone.’ Yeah. I like that. Strength and determination kicks pretty’s arse.
