Floral Friday Challenge.

Some more

Western Front flowers…

from Belgium’s….

Tyne Cot Military Cemetery.

 Finally, considering this post

is being published on

Saint Patrick’s Day…

I thought some clover may be in order,

even if it’s not the four-leaf variety.

Now I just hope he brings the moisture

with him during the next few days.

THURSDAY’S SPECIAL-Traces-Past-0318

 

 

Traces-Past-Y4-03

During this week I visited the nearby

Steiglitz Courthouse Museum.

Steigltiz is about a thirty minute drive from Geelong.

From the  1860s to the 1890s Steiglitz was

a thriving community with at least two streets

of housing or shops all thanks

to gold found in the area.

A wider shot of a wooden water pipe which served,

as the main source of water for Steiglitz,

for 70 years before being replaced in 1960.

 

I think there was some horse harness

around home when I was a boy.

Although at that time it was not considered

a museum piece.  It was still fairly new.

Sixty years tends to change people’s attitudes.

 

 

Blacksmith Bellows.

I’m  sure the word ‘bellows’ could have been

used to describe the actions taken by any sheep farmer

whose dog decided that it knew the best

way to bring home a mob of sheep.

No matter how big or small the mob was there was

nothing worse, or more frustrating, than having your dog

turning your mob back on you because it was

not the usual way home.
