During the past month or so we have also seen these different critters in the suburbs of Perth – an Australasian Grebe (above) on the nest in the western suburbs and colourful Rainbow Bee Eaters in Kings Park.
And Golden Orb Weaver spiders in various patches of bushland. This pair (female at the bottom of the photo) were in the northern suburbs. The smaller male has to be careful not to become the female’s dinner.
We stumbled across this large maze in Perth’s Kings Park. At first glance it looks like a labyrinth (which has one path to the centre, with no confusing decisions about which way to go). However there are some forks in the path, so it is actually a maze though a fairly simple one.
Along the way there are informative plaques about space and the solar system. You’ll find it beside Saw Avenue.
Here are a few more wildflowers that we spotted in the bushland of Perth’s Kings Park recently. Beautiful fringed lilies above, and rather late flowers on the West Australian Christmas Tree.
And some amazing fungi as well.
Went for an early morning walk in the bushland of Kings Park a few days back.
Spotted some interesting mid-summer wildflowers, including Summer Starflower (above) and Narrow Leaf Mulla Mulla.
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:
We spotted our first Spider Orchids for this year recently, growing wild in the bushland of Kings Park just a few kilometres from Perth city centre.
We’ve been for a few walks through the bushland of Kings Park recently and have been struck by the amazing colours of different wildflowers growing next to each other. Sometimes the colour combinations are bold, like the Kangaroo Paws and yellow Wattle above – and sometimes subtle, like the purple Native Wisteria and pink Swan River Myrtle below.
