Afternoon snack

It was getting late and the rain was getting icy. The kangaroos had moved in to graze on the grass opposite the church. Got me thinking about afternoon tea for myself.


  1. Now this is something we definitely don't have around here, ;-) - Are they really so cute? Or only on photos?

  2. Cute, I've never really thought of them as cute but perhaps they are. In wildlife parks you can feed and pat them but in the wild they would jump away before you got too close. A big male kangaroo can be as big as a human which does take them outside of the cute category in my mind.

    are like small kangaroos and they can be very cute.

  3. amazing sight for this texas lady to see :)))

  4. "afternoon snack" - I thought you were going to start munching on a kangaroo leg!

  5. The grass looks rather dry, but they seem to be having a feast.

  6. Now, this is a fantastic image for someone who lives on the opposite side of the world!
    Camels have been introduced there by humans and now the poor fellows have to be shoot down because they are destroying the habitat... Hope this will never happen to endemic species!

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.
