2012 - My Country My Life


Images of My Country - 2012.


 
 
 

I never thought living on a farm would be so sublime and that it would fit me so well

 
 I really feel this is where I belong. Our house is a country house, with large wraparound verandahs that are just crying out for a wicker chair
 
 
 
 



 
 It was such a bittersweet time for me, moving from our comfortable home in the suburbs to a farm, a shed and a totally new life. Having never lived out of town before, I was scared. Fearful of the unknown, worried about change

A treechange

The country life is in my blood, born from the roots of my mother and my grandmother. I just....belong here
 
 
 
 
 


 



I love living in the country

I love the space, the clean air and the peace

The early morning wake up call of the magpie, and the laugh of the kookaburra
 




 

 
 I plan to grow old on the verandah of my house, knitting something amazing while my grandchildren play in the fresh air.......nothing would be sweeter.....

Beautiful photos of our great country. Thanks for sharing. Oh to be young enough to do what you did. You have such a beautiful home and I am sure you are enjoying it so much.
It is hot in Perth today 40C and much of our country in the eastern parts are suffering extreme heat as well ad those horrific bushfires.
