An oddity

In old towns we are used to old churches with old cemeteries but at Mullion Creek this simple old galvanised tin shed church has a new cemetery!  The first burial occurred in 2007. Apparently the town never had a cemetery and  it was a bit of a struggle getting the approval for this one. I'm not surprised.  It's in the very centre of this tiny town.

My contribution to Taphophile Tragics this week.


  1. That will be a puzzle for taphophiles in a hundred years time.

  2. but but but .. you didn't link it in! Never mind ... it has been a hectic month. Probably for you, too. Now for a few days of deluge.

  3. Oddly interesting.

  4. haha, i thought they only had such tin weird churches in the usa!

  5. The sad thing about this, in my opinion. is that the one grave you have shown, is devoid of ... interest. It is pared down to nothingness. I guess grave-markers nowadays are very expensive. But t is all to do with how much the average wage is. Or is it to do with, dead is dead, let's move on.

    Thanks for linking it up ...

    1. Mum and Dad specifically wanted one of the less exciting lawn cemetery plots. You see they lived in the "home town" and had lived through all the fuss from non-local family members about keeping the graves in good nick and knowing that none of us were going to live anywhere nearby preferred that the fuss was the councils not ours.

  6. What an unusual church. They're both unusual and a very good find for the meme.

  7. Well now they have a place for every one to make that final Journey, every town needs at least one amazing to be just how many Cememteries we have around here, and each one seems to have its own disticnt "feel"

    1. Sondra, I'm seeing cemeteries everywhere ... it's all Julie's fault.

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.
