In the early and mid 20th century the Australian economy rode on the sheep’s back. Fine grade Merino wool was our greatest export and once, the bailed wool was stored in the place I now call home. Hessian wrapped wool bales were marked with paint swiped over a stencil to indicate the source of the wool.

My photo of a remnant of a bale marking stencil is from an historic sheep station in The Francois Peron National Park

About ladyredspecs

I live in sunny Brisbane, Australia. My love of good food drives me as a cook, a reader, a traveller, an artist and but mostly as an eater. I cooked professionally for many years but have no formal training. Simply guided by a love of eating good food, respect for ingredients and an abhorrence of artificial additives, I cook instinctively applying the technical know how acquired by experience. I hope you enjoy what I share Sandra AKA ladyredspecs
