Following my post of the railwayline image and my intention to blog more regularly. Of course, to blog more and more regularly, I need to take photos. I wandered along behind Skabby on his walks this week photographing art in the field as learnt from fellow blogger, Gaelyn (Geogypsy's) incredible images of old relics in gardens and in fields.
On a farm, there is NO shortage of rusty old wheel rims, unused gates; fences and old lorries and vans.
At the beginning of summer in October last year, we experienced violent storms which were preceded by very strong winds. The tree just outside my bedroom window (in the neighbor's garden) and which afforded me privacy, was ripped out of the ground by its roots. I have since planted Sizygium Cordatum, commonly known as a Waterberry there in December It's an ongoing challenge for me to remind Joyce (the neighbor's houselady) to water it daily, especially now during the winter months. Joyce is not in my employ so she doesn't have to follow any instructions I give her. I have resorted to carrying a bucket of water over from my garden at least four times a week.
A few days after "my" old tree was destroyed, a 100-year-old tree in the paddock above the calf nursery, was toppled by strong winds. John, the farmer who was born on this farm said he has never known the landscape without that tree.
Yesterday I stopped at the old fallen giant and took photos. There is an old blue pick-up truck nestled in the top branches of the tree where it has fallen.
Further along the walk, I stopped to photograph some agricultural art.
Wishing you all a wonderful week ahead
