Here are some more flowers that you can see along the bushland walking trails in Perth’s Bold Park, right now in the middle of summer.
Thats Yellow Leschenaultia up top, and Western Coastal Wattle (Acacia cyclops) above. The wattle takes its name from the spectacular seeds (below), which look like the eye of the legendary one-eyed giant Cyclops.
And the Jarrah trees are in flower too.
It’s high summer here in Perth, with temperatures getting up to about 40C this weekend. But there are still some wildflowers in bloom. A few days back we walked around the Zamia Trail in Bold Park (above).
Saw plenty of Slender Banksia with its big yellow flower heads, and Tangle Daisy with tiny, almost unnoticeable flowers.
Went to see this impressive mural in West Perth recently. It’s by Amok Island and titled “Major Mitchell Cockatoos”.
We spotted this amazing swarm of bees hanging on a tree branch recently, during a walk beside Lake Goollelal (below) in the northern suburbs of Perth. They were probably out looking for a new home.
We went for a walk in Kings Park a few days back and were amused to see how many of the current wildflowers are white. That’s Prince-of-Wales Feather above, and Grevillea vestita below.
And Tangle Daisy:
As well as the wildflowers featured in the previous posts, we’ve also spotted several bobtail goannas in Bold Park recently – usually sunning themselves on the walking trails or hiding in the leaf litter beside the trails.
There also plenty of flowers on the Slender Banksia (aka Candle Banksia, above) and a few late flowers on the Firewood Banksia in Perth’s Bold Park at present.
Plus some flowers on the Geraldton Wax.
