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.

I like looking at the cracks in the soil. It's certainly not as red in Lightning Ridge as out near Alice.ReplyDelete
It is not at all red in this part of the world. This pinkish grey colour.Delete
One would be hard-pressed to use the term "soil" ...ReplyDelete
Well flowers are growing in it is must be soil in my mind.Delete
