A Day In The A Blue Mountains.

Thanks for visiting my blog. I welcome you to take your time and browse , visiting my bush garden and discovering the wonders of my city within a national park; Blue Mountains National Park. Via my blog you will travel with me through the successes, trials and tribulations of gardening on a bush block. I share with you my patchwork & quilting, knitting, paper crafts, cooking and life in general.

Day 87/366

Coreopsis native of North America.
Now in a love-hate relationship with Blue Mountains Residents.

Blue Mountains folklore tells us that these flowers, which now line the highways and railway lines of the Blue Mountains, grow because someone was homesick for the annual display of colour back in their home country; so scattered seeds from a train as it made its way up the mountain.

Beautiful isn't it?
This summer, maybe because of the excessively wet season, they haven't been so abundant.
