Another day trip to Murphys creek and Highfields

I had a great day full of surprises. It was the third Sat. of the month, Murphys creek market opened with music on. Local mandarin Honey Mercot was $3 a bucket, which has an intense flavor. Two types f mandarin were selling, another is pear shaped, named Imperia, sweeter but I prefer the first one.

I was told Camphor Myrtle is a pest in Australia. I always saw small white flowers in the mountain, which reminded me of Manuka. Walked up and down to the Highfields waterfall today, there I found the so called Camphor Myrtle again.

A local couple worked together to make handmade wood pens, bowls, boxes, hanging crafts.

Interesting plants, Ivy Geranium is great for windowsill show, and 

the 5-in-1 herb smells great.

The next stop is Spring Bluff. Walked up the hill, our friend, a former World Taiji Champion performed the Chen style Taiji.  On lower platform, people were having BBQ party. Poppy flowers started to work their way to greet Spring.

The cafe owner was collecting the blooming Azalia. You may hear all kinds of  whistling birds in the lower part of the forest. A waterfall entry was locked up at this moment.

Magnolia had been blooming for more than one month now in Highfields.

The lookout of the Blue Mountain heights was great.

The Highfields Waterfall is a easy walk through a loop to the top platform of the fall, then off to the twin falls viewing platform.
