More green

The landscape is quite beautiful, mostly grazing country (the field in the foreground is the only one I saw cultivated).

Those clumps of dead stuff are blackberry that has been successfully poisoned. On they way out to the block I saw a sign on the roadway saying "Have you treated your blackberry".


  1. It looks like an add for Meadow Lea. Sorry not to have been around for a while. Computer problems.

    1. Or those ads for Bega cheese. The coastal areas do of course look green like this a lot of the time.

  2. And what a lovely green it is!

  3. As much as I love eating blackberries, I'm very pleased to see sprayed blackberries.

    1. I can't even enjoy eating them. The pesky things have caused so much anxst in my gardens.

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.
