Bold Banksias 3

You can still find a few Slender Banksia (aka Candlestick Banksia) flowers in Bold Park – though it’s right at the end of their flowering season.


In the Wild

We also went for a walk through the bushland of Perth’s Kings Park recently and saw plenty of wildflowers growing in their natural habitat. That’s a Sand-dune Fringed Lily above, and Yellow Starflower below.

There is also quite a lot of this amusingly named Yellow Autumn Lily (it is still spring here).

This one with the dry, papery petals is Waitzia suaveolans (no common name that we know of).
