The painted timber buildings are lovely but their is a downside in Queensland's sunny climate.

By the way the nights continued quite cold and frosty but the days were nice rising to 16-17C.  Just our luck for Queensland to be having a cold snap.  Where were the 20C days we were expecting?


  1. You have had to go further north for that this year I'm afraid. Even the gulf had 10C nights.

  3. You tell me. We've had to have the air conditioning on to warm us and then it decided to die. Still waiting for a replacement. Our timber house needs a coat of timber stain but it doesn't look as shabby as when paint deteriorates.

    1. It was 5 degrees when we were out and about today so relatively the time in Queensland was warm.

      Let's look at the upside, the paintwork on our house might last longer.

  4. Haha, the 20+C Degree days are all over here on the West side!! 27 today in Carnarvon!! Loving your Queensland series - it's bringing back good memories!

  5. Amazing what the sun can do, isn't it?

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.
