Winter world

It's winter world out there.  The vineyards are bare and the hills brown.

    1. Yeh I reckon the country around Mudgee is always nice.

  2. Brown and crunchy - just how I like it.

    1. Brown and crunchy is an interesting thing. Sometimes it is like that in Summer due to heat but when there is rain it stays green but winter usually brings on the brown.

  3. Coming back from the North Island of New Zealand, where the winter colour is emerald green, it's startling to find how different our winters are.

    1. That's in interesting observation Winam I generally am surprised a how warm the north island of NZ is. I somehow expect it to be cold. I certainly find winter is a very different thing in the far North of Oz.

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."

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.
