My garden turns to winter …

I stepped out onto the front verandah today and saw how suddenly the drop of winter has stripped the bigger trees, along the side of the property, of their leaves.  The new trees, those I planted just two years back, have thrived and are beginning to build their own forest in the the front yard, they are still green and lush.  They are evergreen natives; they take my attention.  How could it be that I hadn’t noticed the other trees shedding foliage?  I suppose it has taken a few weeks, but they look so bare and stark and spindly and now I look over the tops of the new trees and see right into the neighbour’s place, see their tidy almost manicured yard which seems in such contrast to the jungle in front of me.  I want the natives to grow fast fast fast so that I can look out and just see trees.
