The Australian bush may not be postcard perfect but I love it ... happy Australia Day.

  1. Happy Australia Day! I think the Australian bush is postcard perfect. Certainly my sort of postcard. :)

  3. Postcards are over-rated. They reflect cliches for folk who cannot think for themselves.

    I like the colours of our bush, but I especially like the smell of our bush.

    Not sure that I like Australia Day. It tends to bring out the drongo in us.

  4. Well, that depends on your point of view!! Your shot looks VERY Frederick McCubbin - and his paintings are BEYOND postcards!!

  5. Yes Red the colour here is very McCubbin.

    Julie, I have warmed to Australia Day since they run it on the fixed date, though the date can be contentious.

    As for postcards ... I wonder how many of the shots we put in our blogs would rate as postcards (hence cliche by Julie's definition).

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.
