I don’t know whether the incredibly talented Mermaid meant this post to be part of Reading Australia, but she has certainly read Australia well with this post, which I commented on.
What a fabulous post. I too lament progress.
I too prefer the rustle of the leaves in the trees to the hustle and bustle of the lives that some people think they must live.
I love the smell of the Wisteria, almost as much as I do the scent of Hyacinth as a wealthy woman passes wearing Chanel number 5. The only fragrance that can compete with the Wisteria is that which assaults the senses after kilometres of bushealking you come across a stand of wild freesias ( an introduced pest ) in the Royal National Park.
Again you have done it. Thanks for the memories.
