Another bookshop


The Leonard French stained glass windows at the National Library are somewhat obscured these days by the book displays and a cafe on the other side of the foyer.

I love this bookshop, I imagine writing essays based on the book titles.  Just look at the ones you can see here -- Island Home, Behind the Lines, Comfort Zone, Barry Jones, The High Places, That Empty Feeling, Public Library -- I am sure I could make up something for each of those.

  1. The stain glass windows are just so beautiful. Pity to have them obscured.

  2. I love that bookshop too - and those stained glass windows.
    I really love that building - the beautiful symmetry and echoes of the Greek Parthenon.
    And of course those humungous tapestries in the foyer.

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.

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.

Musing:
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."

Book Now

Over the road from the rose gardens in Bendigo, a beaut second hand bookshop.
