Bobbed trees


This is wide open wheat and sheep country. Trees with low hanging branches get a haircut at the height the animals can reach.

  1. Very dun coloured soil: wheat shafts waiting to be returned to the soil. Lovely curves to this landscape. You have placed the tree just so ...

    Tell me: Carbonne Country. What sort of a division is that? Shire, parish ...

  2. Got it myself: Cabonne Country, "Australia's Food Basket" is a rich rural shire in central west NSW, covering the towns of Canowindra, Cargo, Cudal, Cumnock, Eugowra, Manildra, Molong and Yeoval. The area is home to the site of Australia's first gold rush and is famous for ballooning, food and wine, agriculture and mining."

    And the name is an Aboriginal word meaning "large". The council site gives a lovely little map.

    Okay ... I'm ready now ...

  3. Great shot! Once again this could be southern Portugal! :-)

  4. hmm, I think I can post something similar ... .
    But around here no cattle roaming and no need to give trees a haircut. A difference between Australia (and Portugal obviously) and Germany.

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.
