After the church it's back to the featureless flat paddocks.

From Figures in a Paddock by John Kinsella
"The sky is brittle blue,
foliage thin but determined:
colour indefinable beyond green."
Read the whole poem at John's website.


  1. It's the perfect collaboration, the picture and the poem.

  2. I saw very few ploughed paddocks. None that I can recall. It must be too early in the season. Maybe I should go out again prior to the spring planting season.

    Do you call that long grass in the foreground, wiregrass?

  3. Likewise, I am wondering when they plough and plant. I guess I will just have to keeping going over the hill until I find out :-)

    Dunno about the grass.

We were having a coffee at the bakery and I noticed a sign on a hotel saying it was a Cobb and Co coach stop.  That got me wondering if there was a hidden Royal Hotel in the town.  A quick google revealed not that hotel but this derelict one as the former Royal.
