More gardens of stone

We spotted this building on the road back from Dunns Swamp. The scenery in this area is simply magnificant. I have to go back one day to try photographing it at leisure to begin to hope to show you it properly. Tomorrow we'll be ending our whistle stop tour of the Mudgee District.


  1. Pressing all the buttons here, you are.

    First you have the RMB box. Then that fence: what do you call a fence built like that. I will try to find out. I am sure my Dad used to know. Then rusty CI.

    Glen Davis rings a bell from my childhood somewhere. Is it anywhere near Sofala?

  2. I think it is called a Post and Rail fence. Yes Glen Davis is in the general vicinity of Sofala, about 80-90 kms away by road but they are in fairly distinct areas i.e. you would not typically go to Sofala and think "while I am here I will pop along to Glen Davis" you would more likely say "while I am here I will go to Hill End or Bathurst"

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."

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.

Royal Hotel - Grong Grong

But wait, no trip is complete until a Royal or two has been added to the collection.  This one is at Grong Grong.
