Places I’ve Been

I’ve been wanting to join ‘Oh, the PLACES I’ve been for ages and I haven’t really been anywhere exciting so I thought I’d share with you the places I really have been lately. These pictures will show you why I have had very little time to read blogs or even think about blogging lately!!! I live on a large farm in Australia (7300 ac) which Mr FH and I run by ourselves. Seeding time is very busy so I am sharing with you some snaps from out and about on the farm. We have just finished planting 2300 ac of crop (canola, barley and wheat) and we run about 5000 sheep. I don’t do any tractor driving but I do help out with everything else. Over the years I have received a couple of serious injuries from working in the sheep yards and I find it very tiring doing farm work. My idea of a great day is dressing up and ‘doing lunch’ and a little bit of shopping, not working on the farm!! I hope you enjoy these photos!

Can you see the vapour trail in this last photo?? We are on the main flight path to the eastern states and we always see these gorgeous features across our sky…wish I was up there at this moment!!

You live in a beautiful place - although I would miss my woodland it is interesting to see other landscapes.

Beautiful farm - I lived on a farm growing up and I know all about farm work - it's hard. love all the little lambs. I have been to your part of the world on business and I loved the county.

Love the places you've been- Your countryside is spectacular. I can remember as a child seeing those high planes leave those trails and was always fascinated by them. We had no airports anywhere near us- xo Diana
