Blue Hills Drive, Glenmore Park 2 of 7

Remnant Bushland
I've failed my suburban assignment already.  My eyes kept straying from the garden topiary to the  remnant bushland over the road.

The sign said "Penrith City Council is actively working to restore and extend areas of natural bushland, particularly endangered vegetation communities.  At this reserve the delicate ecosystem is being cared for and helped to regenerate. A program involving weed removal and planting 1000's of trees and shrubs is being undertaken."

I can almost hear the she-oaks sighing for their lost world.

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.
