Nice country


Here's another shot of the country around here before moving on to Junee ... I like granite boulders and gum trees with blue-grey leaves.

Of course I will also be keeping an eye out for other things I like ... abandoned farm houses ... no point in looking for Royal Hotels because we went along these roads at Christmas time so I've got them all already.

  1. and ... and ... and ... lichen

    This is a gorgeous composition. Not so much Australian as Newsouthwelsh ... how does one encapsulate that as an adjective ... you know what I mean anyway.

    Compare this landscape with what I am showing in the Kimberleys. Just a smidge different, yes?

  2. Yes more than a smidge different. What wonderful diversity of landscape we have. And the more I look the more I see. That's why for example that I keep posting pictures of the forest trees ... they vary so much and I didn't used to notice this much.

  3. I like all the granite tors that appear in and around the Great Dividing Range. Gives the landscape an element of wildness.

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.
