Where I call home.

I live in a beautiful little town called Muswellbrook, which is situated in the Upper Hunter Valley, NSW Australia.  Population around 12,000.  Lately I’ve been trying to find opportunities to take more photos of this beautiful town so even if we take our dogs for a walk I have my compact camera with me.  291 more words

Looking After the Pastures

the cows of Belgium

There is also something lovely about Belgian and Netherlander paddocks. On the train they are these cushioney, wet, nutrient-rich green spans of sun-soaked goodness, large fat cows enjoying feeds too large. 87 more words
