The gum trees are very fragile at the moment. Branches just fall down without any warning and without wind. It can be the stillest night and a branch will fall down. It's quite amazing the weight that is in some of theses branches that are falling.
The other week a large branch bigger (three times as thick as the one in the photo) fell down and just missed Elmo's kennel. So we removed another very big branch that looked like it might fall down as well.
The summer has been mild although March usually can be quite hot. Today is around 35 deg C warm but not stifling and we are back to a dry heat which we like. Perhaps the trees don't like it.
