Wildflowers in Walyunga

There were plenty of wildflowers in bloom at Walyunga National Park during our recent visit. We especially liked the tiny red and pink triggerplants (Stylidium species). Each flower has a sensitive trigger, which thumps visiting insects to ensure that they get covered with pollen.


Walking in Walyunga

A few days back we went for walk in Walyunga National Park, about 30km northeast of Perth. The walk followed the course of the youthful Swan River, which had plenty of water after the winter and early spring rains.
