More Wildflowers

This the second blog on West Australian Wildflowers.

At Meelup Beach, less than a kilometre from where I was staying, I found this pretty pink flower.  Not the hairy edges to the leaves.

The flowers are so attractive before they unfurl as well.  This bed of flowers was blooming on a sandy meadow near Meelup beach.

This foto shows an overview of the bed of flowers.  They can be mown!!

This is a tiny yellow and red flower on the wayside home.  It is amazing how well the slightly pin centre petals matches the slightly orange-yellow of the outer petals.  The plant is a small shrub.

Almost home and I am stunned by this small meadow of tiny blue flowers.

This close=up reveals that the flowers have yellow centres.

In the meadow next to the house there is to be found another mix of clover and grasses and a tiny white flower that is not found in New Zealand.

In the same meadow I found a flower that reminded me of the Sotch Thistle.  It had a much softer leaf system but the leaves tended to be pointed.

These pretty white flowers were found on a shrub that reminded me of New Zealand ti-tree.  We sent into the forest further east to pick up a log of Jarra.  I wandered around the margins of the forest and found a different set of flowers.

Another shot of the same flower.

The flower is slightly out of focus, but the flowers had a beautiful shade of blue with just a 
touch of white.  The plant is a woody shrub.

This foto reveals the shrub in all its glory.  It has leaves like those on some Eucalyptus.

This the last of my flower fotografs.  I will have more plants in my next blog.  Cheers Chris the Pipemaker.
