Red hot pokers

I loved this shed with its clump of red hot poker plants.


  1. When we moved from the farm into the township at the end of 1962, we moved into a shed of about this size with earthern floor and rusty sheets of corrugated iron for outer walls and ceiling. The inner partitions were wardrobes and sliced open potato sacks.

    Don't recall having a photo that I could scan ...

    Nice shed ... and a lovely stand of RHPs ... always think they will attract slugs for some reason.

    Found a lovely bunch of mouldy old leaves of an agapanthus clump on campus today. Will try to remember to take a photo tomorrow ...

  2. Lovely composition and great colours too.

  3. I love the corrugated tin building. The red hot pokers against that green, you can't plan that. It's wonderful.

  4. Absolutely beautiful.
    Love, love, love this photo.

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.

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."

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.
