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.

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.
