God's paintbrush


Now the flower displays are getting showy but there are more tiny flowers to be discovered too.

  1. Aren't our wildflowers beautiful this time of year. Are these photos near Parachilna? I miss the incredible vast starry skies out in the bush. I would live in the Flinders Rangers again anytime, but husband's work is in the city now unfortunately.

  2. Pam, these photos were taken somewhere between Hawker and Maree, I'm not exactly sure where.

    I know all about the demands of city jobs ... I am currently commuting every day from my beautiful Blue Mountains to the city

  6. Martina I don't know!! Most of the flowers were unfamiliar to me. I bought a book to try and identify them but there are so many and so many that are pea flower shaped like these that I can't figure it out.

  7. I wonder if the browny ones are a variety of Boronia known commonly as 'bacon and eggs'?

  8. Julie, there are quite a few different plants that go under the bacon and eggs name, this could be one of them.

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.

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."

Over the road from the rose gardens in Bendigo, a beaut second hand bookshop.
