We’ve been walking through the bushland of Kings Park several times recently, enjoying the mid-winter wildflowers.
That’s Common Hovea in full bloom up top, Prickly Bitter-pea above and two types of orchid below – Banded Greenhood Orchid on the right and Coastal Banded Greenhood on the left.
We also liked this little Acacia species in Kings Park – and the tranquil view of central Perth, with reflections across the Swan River.
Also spotted our first orchids of the season growing in the bushland during our recent visit to Kings Park – Banded Greenhood Orchids.
Spring is still more than 2 months away, but we spotted plenty of wildflowers in woodlands of Kings Park a few days back – including Common Hovea (above) and this pretty Pearl Flower. Both species are native to the southwest of Western Australia and will be in flower through into the spring.
Another flower that caught our attention in Kings Park was this Magnificent Prostanthera, which is native to the Northern Wheatbelt of Western Australia. And we also have a soft spot for Marri (below), which is very common in Perth.
Plenty of colourful winter blooms in Kings Park at present, including the strange Pouched Grevillea above and striking Darwinia species below.
We caught a bit of sunshine at Kings Park earlier this week, between the showers. The war memorial was looking very impressive.
It’s the early winter here in Perth, but there were plenty of wildflowers in bloom in the botanic gardens, including the iconic red and green Kangaroo Paw above and the smaller pink horticultural variety below.
