Central Tilba Streetscape

Isn't it pretty.  I love timber buildings like this and the summer cottage gardens are a delight.


  1. Yes, it is.

    Especially for us on the other side of the globe with our more late-autumn-like winter right now, ;-)

  2. It might be a tourist town but it's a very pretty one.

  3. Tilba is a great little town, disappointing about the cheese.

  4. Oh! I do love that picturesque cottage in the top pic and the cute Bakery obviously it has bread but no cheese - gorgeous captures!

  5. I loved Central Tilba when we visited.
    Pretty with just the right amount of decrepitude.

  6. Lovely country houses and gardens and the compulsory Bakery.

  7. 'Decrepitude'. Hah!

    I read all these posts yesterday, just forgot to comment. I have been to Tilba a couple of times now. I like the houses and probably the community spirit, but as with these things, once they go for the tourist dollar they seem less in my eyes. One of the really nice things about Tilba is the valley, the surrounding hills (and rock cliffs) and the way the fog sits.

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.
