The dots


Out here the dots on the map are wheat silos beside the railway line.  Sometimes there is a small cluster of houses and shops, other times nothing more than a railway siding and a few sheds.

These are the silos at Tullamore, a small town (population 200).

  1. For some reason, whenever I see wheat silos, my mind fills with mice, mice, mice; mice everywhere WITHIN the silo, trying to run up the inside.

    And no, the only thing beside my computer - other than the mandatory cat - is a 375ml bottle of water.

    1. Crikey, I was wondering what you were drinking.

  2. Silos are an icon of country towns I mean dots.

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.
