Animals in the City 3 of 5

Have you noticed there are frogs at the feet of the boar?  It was the first time I've noticed them.


  1. I love noticing wee details like this. But, nope, the frogs had escaped me. I have a Macquarie Street excursion on the schedule soon ... so will overcome ,my prejudice ...

  2. I love frogs and I'm a big fan of outdoor art, so this really appeals to me. :)

  3. I'm a Froggie fan too ... he looks right at home in that spot :D)

    1. Oh yes I remember you are. I like the big green ones in real life.

  4. I like them too. They breed in our fish pond and while I don't see them often I hear their calls

  5. My house is full of frogs (not real ones) because the kids at school learnt that I like frogs so every year I got frogs as presents.

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."
