Forks in the road

Australian bush is dry and crunchy underfoot. The colours are not the vibrant green of Europe but tend toward a drab grey olive. Plants are adapted to a dry harsh climate with leaves that present little to the sun.The Road not Taken
Two roads diverged in a yellow wood
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveller, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth.
by Robert Frost
Photographs taken near Freeman's Waterhole on the way to Cessnock which is inland about midway between Sydney and Newcastle. My friends of well-nigh 25 years, G & P, are building up a small horse stud.

The bottom three shots are very Tom Roberts.

Joan Elizabeth said...

I admire your ability to put together an interesting collage.

Sally said...

Yeah, beautifully put together.

Julie said...

Thank you, folks. I think though that this design does not turn out well - is truncated - on small monitors, so I will left align and make the frame a bit smaller.

As Joan said the other night, one step at a time and I will get a voice that I am happy with.

Hadn't thought of Roberts, Letitia. Wait until later in the week for more TR as my friend Peter had felled many trees in an effort to increase the fertility of his soils. A travelling sawmiller had cut them into fence-makings and left them in piles.

Was I a pig in poo!
