Rhapsody Of The Flowers

One of the most spectacular things about Berowra from late August throughout Spring and into Summer is the colourful show the local bush stages. Berowra is known for its spectacular wildflowers, massed along fire trails, sweeping up valleys and spilling over into local yards. With colours ranging from yellow and white to pink and blue the bush around Berowra is a truly beautiful place to visit. Yet according to our interviewees, what we see today is only an echo of the flowers which were once found in the area.

    I loved the photos of the wildflowers. But there was only a single orchid – the Blue Sun Orchid. During the 1940’s and early 1950’s before we sold the dairy farm in Turner Road, I was a great orchid enthusiast. In a one mile radius of the farm my brother and I collected fifty eight identified species of orchids! many of them only in places that are now built upon. How sad!
