This summer 1 of 10

On the road to Jenolan Caves

Its been raining lots - look at how green that grass is for the height of summer! I find it hard to get inspired to go wayfaring in soggy weather so in recent weeks we have just done a few short drives west of the mountains in places I have already photographed often.

So this is a mixed bag of 10 shots found this summer.


  1. Getting soggier by the minute by the look of things!
    Everything has crisped up down this way.
    I have the sprinklers on this very minute.

  2. Soggy and humid up here. Lines, patterns, colour and moo cows.

  3. I thought you were rating Summer 1 out of ten. Look forward to the next 9 shots.
    I would rate summer 9 out of ten. I think it is the best time of the year and even if it rains lots(or floods) it is still the best season for me.

  4. I bet there's another great series coming up. :-) I've heard about the floods in Australia. On the other hand, this is the hottest, sunniest and driest January I can remember here. I usually hate this month because of the lousy weather.

  5. I am not keen on summer, and the further north I go, the less I like summer. However, I do adore Autumn and Winter.

    Now in this you have just about everything, as Diane notes. Even gates and rust

  6. I agree Summer gets horrible up north and I like Autumn and spring best. But for me to enjoy autumn I need a warm summer ... otherwise it seems like and endless winter and 'between season's weather ... that is what we are having this year.

  7. JM, send some of your hot dry weather this way for February please.

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.

Royal Hotel - Grong Grong

But wait, no trip is complete until a Royal or two has been added to the collection.  This one is at Grong Grong.
