Wildflower season is well underway here in Perth. Yesterday we walked around the Zamia Trail in Bold Park and stopped to photograph the pink ones (there were too many yellow ones!).
Those are Pink Fairy Orchids up top, Diplopeltis huegelii above, and Grevillea crithmifolia below.
Plus some Geraldton Wax
Plenty of native orchids flowering in Perth’s Bold Park too, including Donkey Orchids (above) and Pink Fairy Orchids. Both photos taken along the Zamia Trail a few days back.
Only a month until spring arrives! We went for a walk in Perth’s Bold Park a few days back and spotted plenty of colourful wildflowers.
The Common Hovea above is flowering in many places, and the Prickly Moses below is just coming into full bloom.
Cockies Tongue is past its best, but there are still some impressive examples like the one below.
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.
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.
The Dwarf Sheoaks in Perth’s Bold Park are flowering at present.
The female plants have tiny red flowers on the stems (above), while male plants have quite different looking flowers (below) – Sheoaks and Heoaks!
We’ve been for a few walks in Bold Park recently. Not so many different flowers in bloom at present, since it is late autumn here in Perth. But there are plenty of Banksias to admire.
These ones are Firewood Banksia, which comes in a common pink and orange version (above) and a relatively uncommon yellow version as well.
