Garland


Such a pretty name Garland but nothing to make it a town.  The country is straw yellow with all the grass in seed.

It was a chilly 10C with the mountains shrouded in fog when we left home on Boxing Day.  The day after out here it was a very pleasant 20-25C.  So nice given that most other times we have driven through this area in the summer time is has been over 40C.

I've added Garland as a locality over at 100 towns.

  1. Looks like a pretty little place. We had a 10C morning too on the coast on Boxing Day, but it did warm up the next day.

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.

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.
