Nature as art

I end this trip with a rather lovely corner of the sculpture garden.  The tree ferns remind me of our lovely Blue Mountains.

At that's it for a while until I find somewhere else to go ... maybe I will find somewhere this weekend.  But if not, I am currently posting some majestic trees over at Blue Mountains Journal.


  1. This is around the back of the National Gallery, yes? I have wandered through there on previous visits, but they were massively dry periods. Hoping it will be less dry this time around.

  2. It's an unusual but not unlike-able effect - I guess I not used to seeing tree ferns this tall and with their solitary stems.

  3. Like Dianne, it's a different take on how tree ferns look in their 'natural' state. Love the lines!!

  4. Beautiful setting! Fern Tress are fantastic.

  5. Looks so peaceful and relaxing - just lovely.

  6. Just been back peddling through your blog. great shots of Canberra.

  7. This looks rather Mediterranean.

  8. You are posting to BMJ some of the trips that you used to post to SWF. Is that a deliberate change? I do that with my blogs too, when I get overwhelmed with how many blogs I have and what do I post where.

  9. This year I left BMJ for about 3 months without any posts and thought I should get back to it because it is my CDP blog and also has the most followers. The recent trips have been within the area known as the Greater Blue Mountains, which takes in Wollemi, Gardens of Stone, Yengo, Kanungra- Boyd, Nattai and Thirlmere Lakes national parks as well as Jenolan Reserve and the traditional Blue Mountains National Park. The trips over at BMJ have all been within or at the edge of this area. I save up SW for further away trips and now we have Whistlers Rest and I have been a worker slave for over a year we have not had much chance to get away far. We are hoping to get to the beach sometime in the summer though.

    This year I certainly have not had the time and energy to have all of the blogs publishing at the same time, so I keep SW and BMJ running alternately, I always post on at Burnbrae on Sunday (and sometimes during the week) and WR is more of a random thing.

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.
