Exotics


Canberra is famous for its extensive plantings of exotic trees which means it puts on a terrific Autumn colour display but by this time of year are bare and wintery.  It's a chilly place with the mountains often being snow capped in Winter.

  1. I like the beauty of these bare trees, it's like seeing impossibly elegant sculptures.

  2. They don't look so exotic to my eyes. Yes, yes, I know you mean non-native ...

    HOwever, the reason Canberra went for colour at this level, is because it is essentially colourless at every other level.

  3. Paula, intricate sculptures too.

    Julie, you are sooo right. The planned colour in the buildings is so boring, unlike the wonderful mish mash of great cities.

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.
