Bobbed trees


This is wide open wheat and sheep country. Trees with low hanging branches get a haircut at the height the animals can reach.

  1. Very dun coloured soil: wheat shafts waiting to be returned to the soil. Lovely curves to this landscape. You have placed the tree just so ...

    Tell me: Carbonne Country. What sort of a division is that? Shire, parish ...

  2. Got it myself: Cabonne Country, "Australia's Food Basket" is a rich rural shire in central west NSW, covering the towns of Canowindra, Cargo, Cudal, Cumnock, Eugowra, Manildra, Molong and Yeoval. The area is home to the site of Australia's first gold rush and is famous for ballooning, food and wine, agriculture and mining."

    And the name is an Aboriginal word meaning "large". The council site gives a lovely little map.

    Okay ... I'm ready now ...

  3. Great shot! Once again this could be southern Portugal! :-)

  4. hmm, I think I can post something similar ... .
    But around here no cattle roaming and no need to give trees a haircut. A difference between Australia (and Portugal obviously) and Germany.

Reading

The tiny camera's tiny battery ran out so I went back to my reading. The note with the sculpture says "This bronze and copper sculpture contrasts a series of small human forms with the architectural weight of on oversize staircase. The artwork has a philosophical aspect by reflecting on the effect of reading on the spirit - 'the more I read the smaller I feel'." Crikey, I dunno about you but if reading made me feel like that I'd stop.

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.

Coolibah?

Is that a Coolibah tree beside the abandoned house? Every Australian knows about Coolibah trees because the bush ballad Waltzing Matilda is nigh on our unoffical national anthem but most of us live nowhere near the inland where they grow. Once a jolly swagman camped by a billabong, Under the shade of a Coolibah tree, And he sang as he watched and waited till his billy boiled, You'll come a Waltzing Matilda with me. Waltzing Matilda, Waltzing Matilda, You'll come a Waltzing Matilda with me, And he sang as he watched and waited till his billy boiled You'll come a Waltzing Matilda with me.
