Past Visits: Keith and Judy's home in Bowman, near Barrington

A small group made the trip to Bowman, within the Barrington area on Sunday 20 September. On the way, some explored the biodiversity hotspot of Booral road, in Booral, where the rare Grevillea guthreana is found. 

Judy and Keith have a beautiful property with a mix of native and exotic plants as well as paddocks of orchids (a few) and Violas!

Here are some photos of the two areas (hopefully people can help with naming!). The ones I do know, from Left to right, by row:
