Blog break



I've run out of material for a while.  So will take a blog break until something new comes up. With Autumn getting into full swing surely it won't be too long before the west calls us to go on a excursion (the one above is from the archives)

In the meanwhile, don't miss the new former Royal Hotel I've added this evening.  It's the most splendid one yet.  I spotted it on Paul's blog last week and got permission to republish it in the collection.

  1. Holy Dooley!
    That is a magnificent Royal Hotel!!
    And I love the template for the Royals.
    It looks good like that - you can see them all at a glance!
    Have a good break.
    Lovely photo above - love the Poplars(??)
    and the rocks on the hill, and the shed and the bull - take one item away and it wouldn't be as lovely.

Updated Royals

Royal Hotel Durban South Africa
I have updated the Royal Collection at last!  We now have 130 Royals including a recent contribution of 10 Royal Hotels from South Africa.  
I have seen 96 of the Royals myself, just a few more to go to reach 100.


Blue Wren

Having finished the circuit at the zoo we settled down for a nice lunch at the cafe. This chirpy little blue wren came close to our table while his brown wife Jenny jumped playfully on the grass. Nesting swallows swooped in an out of the rafters.
Musing:The Blue Wrens and the Butcher Bird by Judith Wright
"Sweet and small the blue wren
whistles to his gentle hen,
"The creek is full, the day is gold,
the tale of love is never told.
Fear not, my love, nor fly away,
for safe, safe in the blackthorn-tree
we shall build our nest today.
Trust to me, oh trust to me."

Cobwebs they gather and dry grass,
greeting each other as they pass
up to the nest and down again,
the blue wren and the brown wren.
They seek and carry far and near,
down the bank and up the hill,
until that crystal note they hear
that strikes them dumb and holds them still.

Great glorious passion of a voice--
sure all that hear it must rejoice.
But in the thorn-bush silent hide
the nest-builders side by side.

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.
