Afternoon snack


It was getting late and the rain was getting icy. The kangaroos had moved in to graze on the grass opposite the church. Got me thinking about afternoon tea for myself.

  1. Now this is something we definitely don't have around here, ;-) - Are they really so cute? Or only on photos?

  2. Cute, I've never really thought of them as cute but perhaps they are. In wildlife parks you can feed and pat them but in the wild they would jump away before you got too close. A big male kangaroo can be as big as a human which does take them outside of the cute category in my mind.

    are like small kangaroos and they can be very cute.

  5. The grass looks rather dry, but they seem to be having a feast.

  6. Now, this is a fantastic image for someone who lives on the opposite side of the world!
    Camels have been introduced there by humans and now the poor fellows have to be shoot down because they are destroying the habitat... Hope this will never happen to endemic species!

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.
