A tale of two cities
I was out in Midland today. Don't get there too often so enjoyed the opportunity to have a look around. And something gradually dawned on me: I was really looking at two Midlands. There was the old Midland with it's abundance of BIG trees (Sugar Gums, Port Jackson Figs) and the "new" Midland with all its little trees - Cut Leaf Planes and dwarf Liquidambars. It's sad. We can't see that we're cruelling the very thing that attracted us to these areas in the first place. Nothing good ever comes from a position of fear.
