Pull on your coat, and sturdy boots, put on your gloves and come stroll the town with me as the sun peeps over the horizon.

This is the football field and I include it for no other reason than its where my walk began and I like the colours muted by the frost.


  1. Love the sun on the hills, the neglected tennis court, the bundle of wire(?) on top of the mini shed and those beautiful fan-shaped trees.

  2. That's another iconic country scene, I think. I love the shades of blue, too.

  3. Wonderful shot! I love that there's ambiguity (to me, at least) about whether this is a colour or Bb&W shot!

    Have a great day!

  4. PS - I sent you a 'Royal' pic - did you get it? Or shall I try again??

  5. By the looks I would need my whole wardrobe on to keep warm. Yes the sun splashing on the hill is a nice touch.

  6. The white field makes a great contrast to the peeping sun in the background. Wonderful!

  7. Yeah, what they all said ... but the mess of barbed wire on top of the shed ... hah weather sheds dont have doors ... very Australian ...

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.
