The weather is warming up and the Cove has burst into bloom. Have a look at the website gallery for pictures of some of the wild flowers currently out in the bush. Earlier this week we had a good look along the tracks north of the village towards Bulga Creek.

Two groups are officially nominated by political parties but a number of other candidates have political affiliations which are shown below in parentheses.

Autumn is the time in the Cove people will notice many of the macro fungi start to fruit, that is produce mushrooms, puffballs, polypores and other visible fungi ( as oppposed to the invisible type). There are numerous fungi around the forests in the cove.

Did you know that the mushrooms and other fungi fruit you see are really only a small part of a very large system of fungi below the ground?

It only recently that botanists and others have been studying the complex structures and relationships of fungi and other plants and microorganisms in the...
