Big sky country 15

We are back in the lush green pasture country heading towards Burra to spend the night.


  1. A green view like that is always welcome after being away isn't it. I thought Burra was a nice little place, hope you enjoyed it too.

  2. I have a friend who lives in Burra, when we go in 2 weeks I hope to look her up if our tour coach stops there. I'm pretty sure it will. Love the big sky and the little sheep. We always laugh when we see sheep it reminds us of a conversation we had about the English language. If we call a one foot a foot and two, feet, why don't we call one sheep a shoop.?

  3. Susan. yes I enjoyed Burra. Photos coming up tomorrow. The green is almost a shock after the desert.

    Diane, I was wondering when you were off on your trip. Looks like the weather is going to be kind to you which is great. Shoop ... like that.

  4. I know sheep are pretty daft animals, but I love to see them like this. Little white dots against a sea of green.

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.
