Merry Christmas to all my blogging friends.  I hope you a have a great day.


  1. Merry Christmas Joan, hope you and your family have a great day.

  2. That is an unique piece of graffiti with a good message. Merry Christmas to you too.

  3. Fabulous photo, Joan. Merry Christmas. Here's to a frabjous day.

  4. Merry Christmas to you too Joan, hope you had a lovely day..

    1. Thanks everyone for your greetings. We had a beautiful very cool relaxing day. Just what my eye needs to get fully better.

  5. LOve it, hope you weren't the artiste.

    1. Nah not me. I spotted this at Geurie. I wondered if it has been greeting people for years or if it was a special for 2012. Either way I reckon it will be wishing people a Merry Christmas for many more years to come.

  6. Hi Joan a rather belated Merry Christmas to you and yours. I just knew that this piece of "art" was not by your own fair hand.

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.

Royal Hotel - Ganman

And I wrap up this trip with the Royal Hotel at Ganman.

A stark white forest

Actually the poem says "The stark white ring-barked forests, all tragic to the moon" but this white snow gum forest is not ring-barked, nor is it their normal healthy white ... this is the result of the bushfires that swept through the region in 2003. They are reshooting from the base and will recover but it will be a slow process.

At this altitude snow gums grow low and are usually twisted into fantastic shapes. The stuff of many awesome photographs, typically in the snow.
From The Snow Gum by Douglas Stewart
"It is the snow-gum silently,
In noon’s blue and the silvery
Flowering of light on snow.
Performing its slow miracle
Where upon drift and icicle
Perfect lies its shadow."
