Saturday morning disturbed by chainsaws again. The one big eucalypt tree that we can see from our back window, the one big tree for a couple of streets around, the one big tree that always has magpies warbling and lorikeets shrieking from the branches — well the tree’s gone now, cut down and pulped up. The old house and garden will go soon, to be replaced by yet another pair of big-as-you-can-build two-storey brick boxes, the rest of the block covered in concrete car-parking, white pebbles and tidy-little evergreen shrubs in pots.
