Taking a step away from the natural landscape, over the next week we are visiting Mayfield Garden a large 36 acre garden nestled within a 5000 acre working farm near Oberon. The garden is a work in progress having been started from bare farmland as recently as 1998. This is one of the newer sections. The plantings will be magnificent once they have age on their side.
Hassans Walls is a rocky ridge just outside Lithgow. Apparently it is the highest lookout of the Blue Mountains and being at the edge of the western side has good views of the farmland to the west. But you've gotta walk with me first before you see the view. I reckon these rocks are great.
Most weekends we decide whether to go up the mountain, down the mountain or over the mountain to the supermarket for our weekly shopping. This weekend we decided on over the mountain to Lithgow with the hope of taking in Hassans Walls lookout. As we climbed up the mountain through ever increasing fog my heart sunk. Last time we visited Hassans Walls all we saw was a wall of fog and it looked like this visit would be the same. But after a couple of hours shopping the mist lifted so I can show you this pleasant walk.
The spring flowers are putting on a lovely display.
