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.
