Home on the range


This is another shot taken at Tucklan which I am posting just because I like it.

Over at 100 towns I have posted Home Rule as a locality which is on a rather nice drive between Gulgong and Mudgee ... lots of vineyards.

  1. I like it as well. A very typical Aussie scene.

  2. Yes, it's nice with this really huge tree looming beside the building.

    1. It's interesting that you mention the "huge" tree. To me it is not particularly huge, just the normal height of the larger species of eucalypt.

    2. So ... of course wikipedia knows it all (I searched for "biggest tree in Germany"). One of the tallest tree in the world is an Australian Mountain Ash with 99.6m = http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_superlative_trees

      The tallest tree in Germany (and perhaps of the continent), a Pseudotsuga menziesii), is 63m. It is so special that it even has a name "Waldtraut vom M├╝hlenwald". I guess something between 30m and 40m counts as very tall around here. It's not unusual, but it is huuuuuuuuuuuuuge.

    3. Well this one is nowhere as big as a Mountain Ash. The mountain ash forests are a magnificent thing.

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.
