Hill End is all about fences. I took lots of photos but in the end settled on this one which is not typical ... it's not a paling fence and it's standing up straight for a start. Check out Julie's Hither and Thither for a sample of some of the other fences on show at Hill End.


  1. The lichens are impressive! Great detail shot and wonderful colours!

  2. I love weathered fences. The textures are fascinating.

  3. the lichen on the fence adds such drama and continued intrest...colors so nice!

  4. I like this photo a lot. Nice colours and textures.

  5. You've captured a lovely fence--I really like the detail of the weathered surface.

  6. hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm!

    Really cool! Nice perspective.

  7. Aw ... now don't you have a whole bunch of readers who appreciate the finer things in life!!

    Lichen ...

  8. Not only but also ...

    I like the way the rail frames the verandah.

  9. This is a great shot. The colours and the texture make it interesting and it is well-composed.

  10. I wonder how long it would take to build a fence like that?

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.

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.
