School of Arts

I liked the colour of the fresh spring growth against the soft green walls of the School of Arts at Lucknow. This is an old gold mining town ... the name seems appropriate.


  1. I envy you! :-) Wish it was spring here... It's been raining all day and winter hasn't started yet!
    Lovely photo.

  2. Lucknow????
    I love the shadows of the branches and leaves - signs of spring. I bet you will get a lot of sighs from us Europeans the next weeks and months.

  3. Yes, you've done a great job portraying spring in Australia, all those soft greens...just as wonderful as all the bright greens we normally see everywhere. This reminds me of your wheat photograph, one of my favorites.

  4. Another wooden building! Bricks are not so popular down there?

  5. Hi everyone, not much spring here any more ... it's getting very hot as you will see on my next trip. So sigh on.

    AB, this building is actually of corrigated iron. Bricks are hugely popular, most modern buildings and older buildings in Sydney are built with them but in rural areas they tended to use the local material (often timber) or corrigated iron which is light to transport.

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.

Royal Hotel - Grong Grong

But wait, no trip is complete until a Royal or two has been added to the collection.  This one is at Grong Grong.
