How green is my valley!

View of 'Euralie' and Black Range beyond, via Yass, New South Wales, Australia

Drought broken!

How would you like to wake up to this view? Or sit with a cuppa and watch the sun sink in crimson streaks across these hills?

We drive here quite often and sit and watch, with a steaming coffee in hand.

After weeks and weeks of rain, the dead grass is gone and the hills and creek valley are green felted. The dams are full and the causeway gushing.

The black polka dots of cows across the creek are still, until the farmer’s ute turns up, then watch them gallop!

50 shades of green

Soundless cars and the everywhere white ute speed along on the far road to the lake.

An eagle’s nest perches up in an electricity pylon, abandoned now.


A white cockatoo wheels to the gum trees at sundown, raising a hell of a racket!

A couple of young chestnut horses watch us curiously from the paddock behind. Sometimes two or three kangaroos graze just in front.

So, anyone for a cuppa?  🙂  ♦

  1. Your hilltop perch is a great find. Don’t let Club Med know it’s location.

  2. Lignum Draco says:

    It’s a beautiful scene in the country, particularly after some rain.

  3. I’m up for that cuppa!

How are you travelling? Say g'day!
