Polygonum Billabong



So much water about and water birds abound.

  1. Is that its name: Polygonum? So off I go to look up the meaning ... "Any of numerous plants of the widely distributed genus Polygonum, characterized by stems with knotlike joints and conspicuous sheathlike stipules".

    So is this a Joan-name or an official name? I really do not understand that entire sentence that I copied from the dictionary!

    1. It is the official name and I don't remember seeing any plants of that description there.

  2. The bird life must have been amazing. And I've never seen a gum like that before.

    1. I can't tell one gum from another ... other than that how they look different. It annoys me that I can't name them.

  3. Oh that first shot is just beautiful.
    I want to be there right now - right on the banks of that billabong.
    Hey, maybe that's a Coolibah tree?

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.

Royal Hotel - Ganman

And I wrap up this trip with the Royal Hotel at Ganman.
