Palm trio


  1. They are all pretty especially with the sun dancing on them. We have the berry ones in our yard.

    1. There are sure lots of palms up north. I got quite sick of them in the end. I said to my hubbie I would never put a palm in my garden, then I remembered we already had one!! A very tall skinny thing so high up and in a jungle corner of my garden I have not even noticed if it gets fruit.

      Those berry ones are very attractive. I think my favourite however is the one with greyish leaves like in the bottom shot, just because it stands out from the rest.

  2. Just caught up on the trip, it has brought back many wonderful memories of a family road trip when younger.
    Great photos telling a wonderful story.

    1. I did a trip up there with my parents when I was 15. I remember very little of the detail of that trip so everything from this one was new.

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.

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.

But then the grey clouds gather

Mostly there was sunshine but sometimes rain. The long drought is still too close a memory for us to not welcome rain even on holiday. We are still at Shellharbour here, you can see the steelworks at Port Kembla in the distance. Musing: From The Storm by Theodore Roethke "Along the sea-wall, a steady sloshing of the swell, The waves not yet high, but even, Coming closer and closer upon each other; A fine fume of rain driving in from the sea, Riddling the sand, like a wide spray of buckshot, The wind from the sea and the wind from the mountain contending, Flicking the foam from the whitecaps straight upward into the darkness."
