A feature of this walk were the spring fields of the fragrant jonquils.
The hikers went to visit Scott Conservation Park this Sunday and had a very pleasant (albeit slightly muddy) 3 hour walk. We did a section of a large walk published in the walking guide 'Push the Bush' rather than some of our earlier visits to Scott.
While our earlier blogs about Scott were in full-blown spring - see Scott walk
and Silver mine
- this walk was a winter one - although you couldn't but help notice the first lot of flowers peeking through. It was an interesting trail that took in a few new areas for us - a creek walk, and making our way down a hand made road - as well as some familiar areas. Plenty of frogs (listen to the video).
It was sad to see the Mackereth cottage vandalised by fire - seems such a waste. The walk took in a few previously settled sites - partially cleared, sprouting with jonquils and even the odd Camellia bush! It was is such a good state for a bush that hadn't been tended for a very long time.
It felt like this park was a new one for us as it looked so different from the last time we visited - especially with the jonquils and camellias out - they were pretty cool. When ever you revisit these places, you always see something new. The seasons make a big difference, as does the H2O (that is water by the way). As we walked on the paths we had to chose the driest parts - but it was pretty muddy everywhere. Dad keeps a big box for dirty shoes in the back of the car.
And now a joke ...
Q. What day do eggs hate the most?
