Bush walk

About 5 minutes from my home, there is a pleasant place to walk in the bush. (Except when the ticks are looking for fresh blood.)

This old truck has been rusting away for quite a number of years now. I wonder who decided to abandon the old work horse out here?

I like the texture of the peeling paint and rust

And, nearby, echoing the colours of the old truck, a native shrub in bloom, an evergreen flowering  grevillea, a member of the protea family.

My next post should be from a place far away, geographically and culturally.

    Hi Yvonne, wow, tomorrow, that came around fast – probably not for you though!

    For whatever reason I haven’t been getting your blog updates via email so I only just saw that you are leaving tomorrow.

    Have a fabulous time, I’m so jealous! Stay safe and have heaps of fun.

    I too love the colours & textures on the old truck – they remind me of a painting we once considered buying! – but I wouldn’t have spotted them on my own. You are so observant!

    Buon viaggio & we are also looking forward very much to seeing you here!

  4. Ciao Yvonne, my father has a garage but I think he can’t do anything for your truck 😀
    Protea is our favourite flower because it reminds us our honeymoon in South-Africa…
    We look forward to see you in Venice!!!
