Shake off your winter miseries and take a walk up to Bell Rock, just on the outskirts of town (take Wycheproof Rd/Hopetoun St then L into Butcher St and head north!)
Wear solid walking shoes as the ground is really rough.
Flowering now, although reduced because of the dry conditions our endemic Goldfield Boronia(Boronia anemonifolia ssp. aurifodina)
and some beautiful examples of Bendigo Waxflower (Philotheca verrucosa) on the north west slope below the Rock.
See the verrucosities(warts!) along the leaves and sprawling stems.
