If you understand just how hardy these trees are, you will acknowledge the resilience for survival of the soil, environment, animals, and humans that have called this country home, for as long as humans walked this area.
These trees, and the many like them astound me. In that thought I reflect on all it means to survive out here, and who and what has done it and thrived. My admiration is massive. This is incredible soil, flora, and fauna to accomplish the circle of life, with honours, with all Outback Mother Nature throws at them.
Our indigenous peoples and early settlers. One knowing the land innately. Living by pure skill of knowledge of all things from the soil, up. The early settlers adapting from foreign soils. Learning, changing, and building durability.
Regardless, if plant, animal, or human born to this soil or visiting resilience for survival is key. Respect for Mother Nature is paramount. She’s absolutely, magnificent out here but she doesn’t suffer fools.
