Countryside


Next we went to go find Gumble.  There is not so much as a sniff of a town at Gumble, but there is an old hall.  I see on the web that the Gumble Cricket Club had a fundraising ball there 8 months ago. In February there was a workshop on "Managing flies and lice in your sheep flock."   And the fox baiting group met there in March.  A busy place it seems.

After the green, green, green of this summer the grass is browning off for the winter, except in places where new crops have been sown and land is being prepared for winter planting.

I've added a shot of Gumble Hall in localities at 100 Towns.

  1. Had to guffaw! The list of three event is just classic.

    Aren't dying thistles a photographer's joy?

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.
