Apart from the occasional ‘self-sufficiency’ post, I try to keep the focus of my blog to the land outside our house, but inside the boundary fence. However, the native heath flowering in the Enfield State Park is so beautiful, I thought I would share it with you. We just happened to be driving past on our way back from a farmer’s market, and stopped to investigate the brightly coloured blooms we could see from the road.
Enfield State Park is about twenty minutes drive from our place, so while the environment is similar, it isn’t the same. As soon as I got home, I walked around our place for almost two hours, looking in all of the hidden places, trying to find heath, orchids, or any other flowering plant. In total, I found a grand total of four plants. All four were white-flowered heath, and in comparison with the Enfield heath, our plants were tiny.
