Wheat harvest 2 of 3


The blond fields had me thinking of the Bible verse "The fields are white unto harvest but the labourers are few."

The fields were certainly white unto harvest but apparently the labourers were plenty.  The people next to us at the caravan park were contract harvesters and said they could only find four days of work in the district because the crop was nearly in so would be heading north again.

I have added Finger Post as a locality over at 100 towns.  I think it was the sign post at a junction in the road.

  1. It sure does look ready for harvest. Funny name for a place.

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.
