Tallwood


We were looking for Beneree not Tallwood.  As it happens there is nothing to to show at Beneree and I couldn't pass this old church at Tallwood by.  Back in the old days there were churches on rural properties to serve the rural workers, perhaps this was one of them.

I have added Beneree as a locality at 100 Towns.  Tallwood was not on my list.

  1. Ilove how it's built of corrugated iron and not out of stone or wood.

  2. Isn't it fascinating that 'shape' can so instantly signify 'use'. Except for those two specific shapes, this could have been a shearing shed, up on blocks so the poo pellets fall through to the ground beneath.

    So ... what do you reckon that horizontal lump of timber was for? There does not seem to be much flapping ...

    1. Funny thing is I was thinking that myself when I was photographing it. I reckon the lump of timber was to keep the iron in place. I wonder what is inside.

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.
