Bottle trees

The streets of Mitchell are lined with Queensland Bottle Trees.  Out here in Western Queensland is their native habitat though they will grow in other climates.  It's the first time I've seen them on their home turf.


  1. Are they a type of boab/baobab?

  2. Fantastic trees! There is indeed a great resemblance with the African baobab, so I've checked and both belong to the same family.

The tiny camera's tiny battery ran out so I went back to my reading. The note with the sculpture says "This bronze and copper sculpture contrasts a series of small human forms with the architectural weight of on oversize staircase. The artwork has a philosophical aspect by reflecting on the effect of reading on the spirit - 'the more I read the smaller I feel'." Crikey, I dunno about you but if reading made me feel like that I'd stop.

The end

I retire from the workforce this week and to celebrate have decided to retire my current blogs and start afresh with a single consolidated blog -  My Bright Field  - to record the delights of my new life adventure. If you are interested follow me over there.  I will still be Sweet Wayfaring and collecting Royal Hotels.  The delights I discover along the way will appear together with my gardens and towns where I live.

Royal Hotel - Ganman

And I wrap up this trip with the Royal Hotel at Ganman.
