Small town


Millthorpe's population is around 700 people. The lady at the tea rooms said the town's wealth comes from people working in a nearby gold mine. Also, according to her, as the Blue Mountains have become more populated people seeking small town life are moving further west. I understand the appeal.

  1. I love the rocking horse tucked in right at the bottom of the beautiful blue hydrangeas.

  2. Ah yes - the appeal hits the heart instantly. And the depth of colour of those hydrangeas.

    I love any town that does not blush having a rocking-horse like that outside and "antiques" shop.
