Close up

I never quite know where to stop when it comes to canola.  I am mesmerised by these bright yellow flowers.


  1. How do they harvest it? Where does the oil come from, the stalk or the flower?

  2. Diane, the oil comes from the seeds. So I guess is it not harvested until seeds set. I believe harvesting is done with header much the same as wheat.

  3. Glad you posted this close-up, it's a lovely bloom.

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.
