life never stops...........

WOW where have the last 2-3 weeks gone........... 
a seriously neglected garden but beautifully flowering spots here and there
heaps of sheep work.........and extra visitors which was handy for the lamb marking........

the lake at Lake Cargelligo is finally full after years of drought...........both the town and lake are bigger then I thought they would be........
spotting windmills is fun on the Hay plain (see that little stick in the middle)
occassionally you get a vehicle to pass.............it has been many years since I went across this area but wonderful to see it looking so good

Black Swamp sculptures - something about a headless horseman scaring drovers
finally life stopped for a few days.....
....I spent some time here stitching Gardener's Journal
and playing with fabrics here..........


Now to catch up with everything..........and get over the travelling........
everywhere we went thru in NSW is looking wonderful and green with lots of crops everywhere too.......all the crops are up in head and some are just starting to turn.............harvest will be here in no time...........
I just wished Australia wasn't so big...........goodness knows how many countries I would have been thru if I lived in Europe............
Catch you later..............Chookyblue

  10. It's always nice to get away from home for a little while and forget about the day to day things. Glad to see the countryside has greened up too - here in Queensland things look a lot better as well. Sounds like you had a great time.

  24. Hola amiga, me encanta ver las fotos que siempre pones en tu blog, estamos tan lejos pero a la vez tan cerca de los bellos paisajes que vemos a traves de esas fotografias y veo que siempre es un arduo trabajo que tienes.
    Muchas gracias por estar tan preocupados por lo que estaba pasando aca en Chile con nuestros mineros.

    Un abrazo cariñoso y buen fin de semana
