Palm trio


  1. They are all pretty especially with the sun dancing on them. We have the berry ones in our yard.

    1. There are sure lots of palms up north. I got quite sick of them in the end. I said to my hubbie I would never put a palm in my garden, then I remembered we already had one!! A very tall skinny thing so high up and in a jungle corner of my garden I have not even noticed if it gets fruit.

      Those berry ones are very attractive. I think my favourite however is the one with greyish leaves like in the bottom shot, just because it stands out from the rest.

  2. Just caught up on the trip, it has brought back many wonderful memories of a family road trip when younger.
    Great photos telling a wonderful story.

    1. I did a trip up there with my parents when I was 15. I remember very little of the detail of that trip so everything from this one was new.

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.

Royal Hotel - Ganman

And I wrap up this trip with the Royal Hotel at Ganman.

A stark white forest

Actually the poem says "The stark white ring-barked forests, all tragic to the moon" but this white snow gum forest is not ring-barked, nor is it their normal healthy white ... this is the result of the bushfires that swept through the region in 2003. They are reshooting from the base and will recover but it will be a slow process.

At this altitude snow gums grow low and are usually twisted into fantastic shapes. The stuff of many awesome photographs, typically in the snow.
From The Snow Gum by Douglas Stewart
"It is the snow-gum silently,
In noon’s blue and the silvery
Flowering of light on snow.
Performing its slow miracle
Where upon drift and icicle
Perfect lies its shadow."
