We eventually left the open country and got among the trees.  Their trunks are fresh creamy yellow because they have recently shed their bark.


  1. It's like entering an entirely new landscape after the trees have shed their bark, isn't it? It's our equivalent of 'fall' I think.

  2. Really yellow. Isn't nature wonderful how it uses the full spectrum of colours? :)

    1. There are some really surprising colours in nature, especially among the flowers. Fluro colours brighter than those worn by the hard hat guys.

  3. Those tree trunk colours are quite something :D)

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.
