Sadly I don't have time to return to many of the places on my 100 towns list to get fresh photos. The year is simply going to run out on me.  So I am going to repost some images while we tick of the towns.

Cowra is well known as the place where there was a breakout of Japanese prisoners of war during WW2.  Today friendly relations between the two countries are demonstrated through the lovely Japanese Gardens.

See more of Cowra over at 100 Towns.


  1. So very beautiful! Awesome colours. What a great mosaic, Joan!

    1. What I think is awesome is that someone clips all those plants into balls! There were three guys doing it the day we were there.

  2. This is stunning Joan! What beautiful scenery you have captured. Have your travels taken you to the Limestone Coast of South Australia? If you get there be sure to check out Pt MacDonnell.

    1. Hi Tracey, I have not travelled much in SA. It will be a while before we go Sweet Wayfaring in that direction but I will remember your recommendation.

  3. We went to a little Japanese garden out in Wellington a few months ago, but this one at Cowra looks far more extensive.

    1. Yes it is much more extensive than the one at Wellington.

  4. That's pretty and a good idea to recognise what happened.

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.
