Wheat


We are back in the wheat country again. I didn't realise there was so much of it around Adelaide.

  1. There is nothing like a train journey, I have so many great memories, sadly the XPT up our way is no match for the glory days of the Brisbane Limited Express, the Daylight Express or Gold Coast Motorail.. even the North Coast Mail was great fun!
    There are few great trains left in OZ but this surely is one of them.

    1. Hey you have done more trains than me. The only one I would have caught of those is Brisbane-Sydney one back in the 1970s ... don't know what it's name was.

  2. I remember the daylight express. The wheat shot is great. Gives the feeling of a great expanse.

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.

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."

Over the road from the rose gardens in Bendigo, a beaut second hand bookshop.
