I remember when this tree 
was a sapling
in our backyard
too spindly for my children to climb.

It's big enough now
they've moved away.

ah, this is lovely Sue. I'm wondering what kind of tree this is as it's unfamiliar to me but I love the smoothness of it and the perspective you've given. well done!
have a beautiful day!

Becky, thanks, I had fun trying to give a sense of its height. it's a eucalypt but I don't know what sort. All around the base are long ribbons of bark that it sheds each year. they can be up to 6' long or more.
