Icons 2 of 3

This one is just loaded with country town icons ... the long clothes line rather than the ubiquitous Hills Hoist of the suburbs (or using the clothes line instead of a dryer),  the simple faded cotton frocks, the old tank to store the wood (or having a wood heap at all), the wire fence and the bare back yard


  1. Ilike how you've captured the clothes fluttering in the breeze...

  2. I felt transported by this image. It's part of another world.

  3. Lovely icons - so typical.

  4. Lovely icons - so typical.

  5. I love this. So much about it to love - especially the knickers!

  6. I wonder what the owner would think of having her knickers shown to the world. hehehe. Love the shot It is truly an icon of country life. Could do with some kids playing cricket in the back yard.

  7. Ditto ditto ditto ... such a great shot to look at ... so long since I have seen a washing line like that one ...

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.
