King Street. Coolah 3 or 7

A dead shop is pretty much par for the course too.

    1. So many shops ... country and city look sad these days ,, taken over by shopping malls and the internet.

  2. This would be ideal for tea-rooms. I can see a rusty barrow planted with trailing geraniums out front .... an old pedal bike with pretty pansies in its basket. Vintage lace curtains - Redoute printed tablecloths and vases holding sprays of field flowers. And of course the best coffee and tea in town!

    1. Yep it looks ripe for such treatment, the only problem is that it is rather out of the way with the rest of the town ... an odd spot for a shop actually. The town bakery however seemed to be doing brisk trade and was very nice indeed.

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.

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."

Book Now

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