Green and Gold

Photo: Farm in Megalong Valley

At the moment the farms of the Megalong Valley are sumptuous in the golden glow of autumn sun on grass now emerald green from recent rains. Green and gold are Australia’s national colours.

Words to walk with:
From A Landscape by J.R. Rowland
“On a day like this, in early autumn
The crow speaks loud across the quiet valley
And the ribbed willows stand at anchor by the river
Yellowing in silence, and slow cows are solemn”
