Morning walk

I went for a morning walk by the river, hoping it might be misty and interesting but mostly found bulrushes and weeds.

Though I really like this pale pink gum near the camp ground.


  1. The grasses are pretty and the camp ground looks nice.

    1. Yes it is a lovely camp ground. There were cobblers peg in that grass. Had to pick them all out of my coat when I got back.

  2. Love the little turnstile You don't see them like this much anymore.

    1. I too liked it … hence it was my feature shot. I found a couple of others like it in the perimeter fence.

  3. Interesting to see that it's a mixture of east coast and arid trees (is that a desert oak?) out there in Gilgandra.

    1. I have no idea. Unlike flowers the different types of trees defeat me.

  4. It is all looking remarkably green. "Cobblers' Pegs" - have not heard that expression for ages. Instantly, brought forth a deluge of images in my head ...

    1. Yes it was very green out there … almost spring green. We haven't had rain here for ages but winter is usually dry here.

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.
