Its the same house as yesterday.  Worth a repeat I think for the silvery weathered wood and wintery grass in the low sunlight.

We are not too far from Yeoval.  Visit Yeoval at 100 Towns.


  1. I can sense of peace and quiet as the sun slowly sinks in the sky leaving that wonderful soft golden glow ..... A beautiful capture.

  2. Silver with a touch of gold. Nice framing.

  3. I like this better than the day before. I like rural neglect for many reasons.

  4. I like rural neglect AND urban neglect. They are both a magnet.

    Look at the angle of the roofing here. It is very erect. Am I right in thinking more so than normal in the NSW countryside? I wonder why they want to capture more air in the ceiling cavity - temperature control? Perhaps simply because they like the design ...

    1. Yes the pitch of the roof does seem higher. Perhaps they came from Europe and the snow and didn't realise they were not going to see any here. Like older houses being oriented South instead of North.

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.
