And restaurants with log fires to lure you in from the cold. But we headed down the road.


  1. This composition couldn't be better, J.E.!

  2. Looks like enough firewood to keep you warm all week--nice picture!

  3. Grand little bower this is ... is that a wisteria do you think?

  4. Hey there is some green around... cant be too cold (wink)! Nice shot...

  5. Everyone, I'm interested that you responded to this shot. It wasn't a particular favourite of mine, more of a location shot to drive hte story along. I'm like to learn from your reactions.

    Julie, either wisteria or grape I guess.

    Sean, cold here is definitely not like cold over your way. No snow, just a bit colder air.

  6. JE - I'm going to respond to this one too.
    I dunno what it is, but it's very appealing.

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.
