Sea birds


Musing:
From The Cormorant in its Element by Amy Clampitt
"Plummeting waterward, big black feet splayed for a landing
gear, slim head turning and turning."

  1. Oh, what a joy. We have sugar white beaches and no rocks here... just condos. I do miss the variety find at other seashores so this is wonderful to contemplate.

  2. Oh the exquisite pleasure watching a bird open up its wings to the wind - at the same time opening up its frail chest to predators ...

  3. All three shots look fantastic and they perfectly match. Great collage, well done! I like the framing too.

The end

I retire from the workforce this week and to celebrate have decided to retire my current blogs and start afresh with a single consolidated blog - My Bright Field - to record the delights of my new life adventure.
If you are interested follow me over there.  I will still be Sweet Wayfaring and collecting Royal Hotels.  The delights I discover along the way will appear together with my gardens and towns where I live.

The filmy veil of greenness

We crossed the border into Victoria cruising down a lovely timbered road before breaking into the rich dairy country of Gippsland. It is wonderful to see the land green after more than 10 years of very dry weather. But most of the state of Victoria is still drought declared.

Musing:
The Pasture by Robert Frost
"I'm going out to clean the pasture spring;
I'll only stop to rake the leaves away
(And wait to watch the water clear, I may):
I sha'n't be gone long. You come too.

I'm going out to fetch the little calf
That's standing by the mother. It's so young,
It totters when she licks it with her tongue.
I sha'n't be gone long. You come too."

Over the road from the rose gardens in Bendigo, a beaut second hand bookshop.
