Went for a walk in the woods last weekend, not far from home. It was led by flora expert John Hodge and fauna expert Alex Dudley. It was part of a rare pocket of environment called a semi-green vine forest, with the qualities of a dry rainforest. It is alive on a patch near an old dump outside of Bingara, New South Wales, and people over 65 were prying bits of 1950s glass out of the soil path beside the children. I took home a chunk of an old violet bottle and saw some beautiful bits of our world.
