Sheds 2 of 5


I love jonquils for the way the naturalise so nicely and flower so early in the season cheering up winter days and old sheds.

  1. They are just a lovely little surprise, aren't they?

    This shed is rather "fancy" with the flashing stuff on the corner - very nice touch.

    (PS. I totally missed your comment about cooking the flourless choc pear cake! I'm so glad you tried it too! It's easy to make, isn't it - lots of bang for your buck - and very delicious - Vince is bugging me to make another one.)

  2. I'm a jonquil lover and especially the waft of perfume across a field and the way they grow in little clumps/clusters. Always pretty and delicate!

Reading

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.

Coolibah?

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.
