Green grass

The pasture land is still lush and green.


  1. Golly is is swathed in the stuff. The background is Flinders, eh? Yes, I can see that now.

    Did you see the docu by Paul Lockyer on the ABC last night about the greening of the inland. Had me totally mesmerised with the continual overlaying of before and after images and tracing the progress of the waters from September 2009 until this January. Such a good pice of film. He is a remarkable rural reporter, is Mr Lockyer.

  2. Yes I watched that doco with delight comparing it with our own Lake Eyre trip.

  3. Yes, we watched too, although Bill watched parts of it through his eyelids. It was a great piece of work.
    Love your green pasture. The grass under the trees in our forests is taller and greener than I have ever seen it.

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.
