Fantastic Fungi

After the recent rain, there are plenty of interesting fungi popping up around Perth.

We saw the one up top in Mabel Talbot Park, and the others in the bushland of Bold Park.


Daisy, Daisy

Autumn in Perth’s Bold Park, and not so many wildflowers to admire. But that yellowish plant in the left foreground deserves a closer look. It’s Coastal Daisy Bush, which has tiny yellow flowers but is rapidly approaching the end of its flowering season.

The plant is also known as Wild Rosemary and was reportedly used as a culinary herb by sailors on ships that came here in the 17th century.
