At the edge


We have passed the irrigation zone and are moving further west. The trees are getting shorter and the earth is becoming bare.

  1. ... and the sky is getting blue. What a sky!

    Besides my "I want blue sky, too" rambling I really like the photo with the sky inhabiting two thirds of the frame.

  2. This is what the land will support without diverting water from its natural course.

    *grin*

    But then, man has always done this, just that in this case the natural watercourse and catchment is depleted severely.

  3. Sue and I just got home from a little getaway so I am catching up on your travel posts. I had no idea that Australia produced so much produce. Irrigation is the miracle I suppose.

  4. Martina and Julie, more sky and another very interesting landscape change coming up the day after tomorrow when we cross the Hay Plains ... so watch this space.

    TG, yes Australia feeds itself and exports huges amounts of primary produce.

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.
