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.

Not sure how I feel about wind farms. I appreciate the energy they create and realise that my great-grandchildren will regard them as normal. However, they do blight the landscape.ReplyDelete
I like them. They make the landscape interesting.ReplyDelete
The hills were yellow with ready to harves wheat when we were there. There are 170 turbines.ReplyDelete
