Undulating



We are travelling through sheep and wheat country, lovely undulating land before we reach the big flat plains.

The fields are a patchwork of winter crops breaking through with a sheen of green, brown soil tilled for planting and straw coloured pasture.

  1. I love this variety of Australian countryside. Heavily farmed and changed from what nature provided for the early settlers.

  2. There is something about patchwork scenery which is compelling.

  3. I see it as the transition lands between the city and the big farm lands, between the hills and the plains, And yes I love the patchwork too.

  4. Another shot that could have been taken at the Alentejo. :-)

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.
