Round Swamp

At Round Swamp I stopped to take a photo a hay field but found this photo on the other side of the road more interesting.

From Solitude by Ella Wheeler Wilcox
"Laugh, and the world laughs with you;
Weep, and you weep alone.
For the sad old earth must borrow its mirth,
But has trouble enough of its own.
Sing, and the hills will answer;
Sigh, it is lost on the air.
The echoes bound to a joyful sound,
But shrink from voicing care."


  1. Wow - whoever strung that barbed-wire had a pretty good level ...

  2. Yes is was the way the fence so perfectly followed the horizon and the loneliness of that tree that attracted me to this scene.

    I am a country town girl, not a farm girl, so don't know anything about stringing fences.

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.
