"One Tree Hill" - stitched by Margie

The Australian landscape – wide blue skies, the occasional rise, and so often a lone tree struggles against the elements.  Hence many locations have the name One Tree Hill.
In her recipe book c.1912 my grandmother wrote her address in this curious fashion:
G. J. Blythman lives at One Tree Hill 
his missus lives there too 

[It would be a very brave, or foolish, red breasted robin to be seen in the open like this]
