It's Dry




Happy New Year.

We have gone nowhere this Summer other than to our bush block at Clandulla.  I have been feeling a little desperate that I would never get this blog rolling again.

However, this weekend while we were at Clandulla my husband said "How about we go for a drive to Mudgee".  I jumped at the opportunity because the day was almost done and I was hopeful of getting some late afternoon shots of my favourite lake on the way home.  

The countryside is brown and dry right now.  Though as we approached Mudgee there is respite with the green of vineyards.  I understand the harvest was a couple of weeks earlier this year because of the very warm spring and hot summer -- they were expecting a good crop.

The lake is still carrying a lot of water well up from its low during the big drought so I am going to give you a week of watery shots for want of anything else to show and hopefully get back into the swing of posting.

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."

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.
