Autumn colour


  1. Gorgeous autumnal colours. So rich and vibrant.

    1. We are only at the beginning of Autumn so lots more colour to come. I quite like the Pin Oaks when they are at this stage but no so much later in the season because they hang onto their leaves during the winter and look very untidy and drab when the rest of the trees are looking artistic and skeletal.

  2. Great colous indeed.

    Joan, thank you for the information on the Norfolk Trees. I've just done some research and found out that there are 19 species of Araucaria, some native to South America. Maybe I'm mistaken (they all look very similar) and those in my photo are not Norfolk Trees. Perhaps they have come from the former colony of Brazil...

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.


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.
