Where wild thyme blows

Photo: Roadside grass, Oberon

At the moment the roadside is gloriously sprinkled with flowers -- blue Paterson's Curse, white daisies, yellow paper daisies, and the usual muddle of fluffy grass heads, dandelions, wild herbs and escaped garden plants.

Musings:
Oberon speaking in "A Midsummer Night's Dream" by William Shakespeare
"I know a bank where the wild thyme blows,
Where oxlips and the nodding violet grows,
Quite over-canopied with luscious woodbine
With sweet musk-roses and with eglantine:
There sleeps Titania sometime of the night,
Lull'd in these flowers with dances and delight;"

We were having a coffee at the bakery and I noticed a sign on a hotel saying it was a Cobb and Co coach stop.  That got me wondering if there was a hidden Royal Hotel in the town.  A quick google revealed not that hotel but this derelict one as the former Royal.
