State Forest

The natural forest around here is beautiful.  On a quick drive down a side track we found these pretty ground orchids in flower ... it isn't really surprising that these are known as hyacinth orchids.


  1. They are gorgeous, Joan. Bush flowers never cease to amaze me. Much more complex than anything man can engineer.

  2. Wild flowers tend to be heartier than what most of us cultivate in gardens. I'd love to have this one growing nearby.

  3. That is a beautiful wild flower.

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.
