We’ve also seen plenty of interesting wildlife in Perth recently. During our walks in the bushland of Bold Park, we noticed the Black-faced Cuckoo-shrike above, just taking to the wing. By contrast, the family of Tawny Frogmouths below sat very still and pretended to be part of the tree.
And this Bobtail Goanna was hoping that we couldn’t see it hiding in the undergrowth.
We’ve been for a few walks through the bushland of Perth’s Bold Park recently. The spring wildflowers are past their peak, but there are still plenty to look at. The Grasstrees (above) have their tall, spear-like flower heads in full bloom. They are very popular with the bees.
There are also pretty triggerplants flowering in the undergrowth.
And the One-sided Bottlebrush looks like it has been decorated, ready for Santa to leave presents underneath.
Here are a few more wildflowers that you can see flowering in Perth’s Bold Park at present – One-sided Bottlebrush above and a rather late Firewood Banksia below.
As well as the flowers, you will probably hear – and maybe see – a Kookaburra or two along the way.
We have also been for some walks along the bush trails in Perth’s Bold Park recently. There are plenty of colourful wildflowers to admire along the way.
That’s Geraldton Wax above, and Yellow Leschenaultia below. Both are flowering nicely at present.
Here are some more West Australian wildflowers that we saw in the bushland of Bold Park earlier this week.
That Granny Bonnets up top, Diplopeltis huegelii above, and Slender Clematis below.
We went for a walk around the Zamia Trail at Perth’s Bold Park earlier this week.
There are plenty of spring wildflowers in bloom at present, including Prickly Moses (top), Geraldton Wax (above) and Grevillea crithmifolia. Some are past their best, but others are just coming into flower.
There is quite a lot of this small flowering shrub in Perth’s Bold Park at present. It is half hidden in the undergrowth and not particularly noticeable. But if you take a close up look, you’ll find that the small flowers are quite pretty. It’s called Pearl Flower (Conostephium pendulum).
