I ran away from teaching to the country to grow veggies. There are also some chooks and a pair of troublesome goats who were so much trouble they had to go! My simple green life isn't always as simple or as green as I'd like...but I keep trying!

What colour is the water in the creek?

The same colour as the sky, of course.

I love this creek!

It has a good permanent flow, is beautiful, fresh, full of yabbies, trout and other fish,
home to platypus, wonderful to sit in on a hot day
and it provides the water for my garden.

So I think the water is actually golden.


  1. Gorgeous photo, wonderful creek, simply & beautifully put post!

  2. That is an extraordinary shot Hazel.

  3. I can just imagine playing in it on a hot summer day with the children, splashing around in their undies...I would of course be in more than my undies, but creeks are great are very lucky to be living so close to such a beautiful clean waterway...

  4. I'm envisaging "Waltzing Matilda" now... Your place is certainly in an idyllic setting! I suppose you don't harvest the yabbies, do you?

  5. if your creek flows from lake E,and I think it does,then we have caught many a trout from there but up and over a bit, we have the fondiest memories of there, when Micah now 15 and shekinah now 14 where both 3 weeks old we took them up there on their 1st fishing /camping trips

  6. wow you are so blessed to have a creek this beautiful and so plentiful near your home.

  7. Mrs Mac, It is the King Parrot Creek and it is spring fed from the mountains up behind us (Kinglake), it flows into the Goulburn and then into the Murray...I don't think it is the one you are thinking of. But if you are half the fishermen you say you are, you probably have fished it.

    Mark, Yabbies are easy to catch with a bit of meat on a string. They hang on then you gently pull them towards you and net them. But you are right, we don't partake...being mostly veggo. And The Cook doesn't like to eat things with the eyes looking at her. LOL

  8. wow - it sounds perfect, and looks it too.

  9. What a beautiful creek,you must have responsible folk around to keep it so healthy! perfect on a hot summers day.
