Bylong Valley View

It's a pretty drive with mountain ranges on either side of good quality rural land.  The green summer grass, boosted by the ample rain we have received this year, is giving way to drying seed heads.  OOh I like grass seed.


  1. And your header is the Bylong Valley, too ??

    We KNOW you love grass seed ... and doesn't it look wonderful with the sun behind it. The countryside is glorious, I agree. I can understand why you ceased 'recording' at Singleton.

  2. And I like this photo ... with the different layers of grass, pasture, trees, hills, sky and the animals silhouettes.

  3. A great rural scene and nice focus on the grass seeds.

  4. It looks very peaceful.

    I need to get a better handle on all your blogs--it looks like you are busy with the others when you aren't updating here.

  5. Julie, my header? If you mean the background image ... that is the Flinders.

    Mary Ann, I'm trying to reduce my compulsive blogging behaviour this year hence the occasional break when i doing something more intensive over on the other blogs ... also with me being out at Clandulla more often and my current work contract has less flexibility so not as much Wayfaring is possible,

  6. Oh, I'm sure I'll get the hang of it sooner or later. :) I don't want to miss out.

  7. Gorgeous photo. The epitome of summer.

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.
