Home again


Well not exactly home but on very familiar turf and getting closer to home.  This is Mudgee where the vineyards were still winter bare.

That's the end of this trip.  Not sure how long it will be before the next one.

  1. Mudgee wine is tops. Glad you had an enjoyable trip and I hope its not too long before you are on the move again. You are always welcome here if you are ever in this area.

  2. I have just been checking out your recent posts and I am amazed by those sawn rocks. Love the Boggabri hotel, it is very similar to our Dorrigo hotel. Hope you enjoy being home again.

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.
Musing:
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."
