Medical Matters

We were walking past the Western Australian Medical Museum in Subiaco recently and went inside for a look. The museum had plenty of graphic reminders of how much medicine has improved during the past century.

We especially liked the early “lying in” room above and this collection of Flying Doctor memorabilia. The volunteer run museum is only open on Wednesdays and some Sundays, so check their website for details.

Taking the High Ground 2

Although it is mid autumn here in Perth, there were still some interesting wildflowers along the Baldwin’s Bluff trail at Serpentine National Park. There was plenty of the large flowered Hibbertia species above and also these small daisies.

And a few spectacular flowers on the Lemon-scented Darwinia as well.

We were pleased to see that Lemon-scented Darwinia was featured on the large sign in the picnic area – because it featured one of our photos ( with our permission, of course). Oops, sorry for the shameless self promotion – but we did earn the bragging rights after all.
