Winter world

It's winter world around Canberra.  Escaping daytime maximums of 8C at home we're looking forward to warmer days, though we do anticipate chilly nights in the inland.

The grass is wintery brown but there is lots of it after all the rain of recent months.


  1. Nice shot but looks cold. I haven't thawed out from the bridge climb yet.

  2. I love nothing better than a sunny, crisp winter's day.
    Tastes like an apple.

  3. Wonderfully bleak image. And yes, I can see at the same time that it is bountiful. I am intruiged by your working schedule. Bit like being a 'writer' really. How exciting for the two of you.

    1. Well I am a writer of sorts ... of marketing brochures! The new schedule was a deliberate change to allow us to try a more free wheeling lifestyle.

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.
