Canola


Those mountains are Mount Kaputar National Park.  We are on our way out there, passing by canola fields, to see what the Sawn Rocks are all about.

  1. I was just looking on Poof this week at a couple of photos of Mt Kaputar.
    It's such a lovely sight when travelling along that road.

    1. Yes it is. It's been a long time since I have travelled the Newell so it was quite forgotten to me.

  3. Canola fields are (IMO) essentially boring. Nothing can compare with a field of ready to strip wheat.

    1. I like ce it. and I loves fields of wheat. But one of the crops I really enjoy is peanuts which are planted in red soil which contrasts beautifully with the green and is usually planted in contours rather than dead flat country. It's been a long time since I was last in Qld during peanut season so have no photos of it.

  4. It looks like a really beautiful place, especially with the yellow canola.

    1. I really like the yellow blue combo. It works in the same way with gold n dry summer grass against blue mountains.

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.

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.
