Garland


Such a pretty name Garland but nothing to make it a town.  The country is straw yellow with all the grass in seed.

It was a chilly 10C with the mountains shrouded in fog when we left home on Boxing Day.  The day after out here it was a very pleasant 20-25C.  So nice given that most other times we have driven through this area in the summer time is has been over 40C.

I've added Garland as a locality over at 100 towns.

  1. Looks like a pretty little place. We had a 10C morning too on the coast on Boxing Day, but it did warm up the next day.

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.
