Walking home from the shops recently, I noticed that the pie factory was a lot more visible then usual. It took me a moment to realise that the row of trees that usually flanked the perimeter was gone.
With Tara's Gallery prompt this week being trees, I thought I would go back and take a look. So armed with camera and feeling somewhat like an undercover investigative journalist, I did just that.
It was terribly sad to see the once tall, graceful tress reduced to piles of logs and untidy branches.
I am not good at keeping abreast of local news so I don't know if this arboreal massacre was part of an improvement and development scheme which may include a replanting program. I hope so.
