The peculiarly / slender and upright foilage which is seen in the foreground is that of the myrtle tree. Dogwood, brush, / staghorn, ferns and wattle make up the background. Considerable difficulty is experienced in reaching the Dell, / in conseqence of the precipitous hills and dense scrub which surround it.
