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 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.
