You see signs like this all around the place.  With all the rain we had this summer it was not a message that bothered anybody much.

Tomorrow we finish this trip at Browns Creek which is not at all brown at the moment.


  1. Ah, yes ... but come NEXT summer ... all hell will break loose ...

    There was a beat-up in the SMH this week about how MS-Word was past its use-by-date. This sign is Word personified!

    1. The trouble with word is that everyone thinks they are a graphic designer. I get heaps of documents from people that I tidy up (I send the real design work to graphic designers) but what it interesting is that after a document is tidied up people know it looks better but haven't got a clue as to what was changed to make it so. It is as if they are totally blind to paragraph spacing, font sizes etc -- sort of visually tone deaf.

    2. People don't read white space.

  2. Yes there will be lots of undergrowth come the next dry season, which is just around the corner. You have done a great job with your towns.

    1. Yes there will be a dry season if not this year, then the next or the one after. I would say that typically here in the mountains we get a big fire every 7 years or so.

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.
