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).

In the Garden


A few days back we went for a walk through the botanical garden section of Kings Park. Although it is almost the end of spring, there were still plenty of West Australian native wildflowers in bloom.

We especially liked the Cooloomia Verticordia (above) and this brightly coloured Kalbarri Beaufortia.

And this delicate Blue Lace Flower as well.
