Hill End is all about fences. I took lots of photos but in the end settled on this one which is not typical ... it's not a paling fence and it's standing up straight for a start. Check out Julie's Hither and Thither for a sample of some of the other fences on show at Hill End.


  1. The lichens are impressive! Great detail shot and wonderful colours!

  2. I love weathered fences. The textures are fascinating.

  3. the lichen on the fence adds such drama and continued intrest...colors so nice!

  4. I like this photo a lot. Nice colours and textures.

  5. You've captured a lovely fence--I really like the detail of the weathered surface.

  6. hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm!

    Really cool! Nice perspective.

  7. Aw ... now don't you have a whole bunch of readers who appreciate the finer things in life!!

    Lichen ...

  8. Not only but also ...

    I like the way the rail frames the verandah.

  9. This is a great shot. The colours and the texture make it interesting and it is well-composed.

  10. I wonder how long it would take to build a fence like that?

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.


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.
