The old dairy window

Ludwig’s Monday Window 2 August

On a drive on the weekend, we came across this cute little building. There was a woman in her garden so I asked if I could take a few photos. She told us the history of the building. It was the dairy milking shed and had not been used for many many years and was in disrepair. She was going to have it pulled down but the bloke said it was worth doing a few repairs as a lot of it was still solid. He did a great job on the building and left the window as it was.

The wooden window was lifted and the ring on the bottom was hooked onto the chain to keep it open. I was going to open the window but it was heavy and I wasn’t sure it was going to work.

Square Trees #19 – The old matchstick forest

Becky’s Square Photo Challenge July: Square Tree

This forest is the remnant of the trees that were grown to produce matches when Grafton had a matchstick factory many years ago.

Square Trees #14 – Tree or fence

Becky’s Square Photo Challenge July: Square Tree

Your tree song for today

A tree I found a while ago and went to rediscover if it was still there. Just goes to show that nature wins some of the time. You can see where the fencing wire went along the tree or perhaps they drilled through the small tree to use a s a fence post.

When the landowner re-fenced, I am glad they left the tree there and put in posts either side of this remarkable Spotted Gum Tree.

Pick a Word – May 2021

Paula’s Thursday Special: Pick a Word May 2021

Here we are in May already and some words that I may struggle with this month. A bit of lateral thinking may be needed. I don’t really have any alpine photos so a photo of Cradle Mountain in Tasmania with a bit of leftover snow will have to do. If you are wondering about the Teddy Bear in the cage, that was part of a silent protest against the Australian Government holding refugee children in detention camps,

Debbie’s Six Word Saturday

I just had to use Debbie’s title with a bit of a twist. This is a juvenile Black-necked Stork, The only endemic stork to Australia, stretching it’s wings getting ready to learn to fly and leave what is basically a cow paddock with a bit of water after the rain.
