Western Australia is famous for its wildflowers. I decided to take some fotos of the flowers I came across on my wanderings.
This is a little white flower that grows on a stubby shrub. It has an unusual array of petals, in that is of four petals, with white stamens in abundances. The leaves are similar to pine needles.
Here is a shrub with rather woody stems and rather prickly needle leaves. The small purple flowers have multiple layers of petals.
These bright yellow flowers do not appear to have any petals. The color comes from an abundance of yellow stamens. The leaves have a double shape in that a whole trench of leaves are together and form a shape like a leaf. This plant is found hugging the ground.
This might be the same plant as in the previous fotograf, but here we see the fruit formation.
This pant rather resembles a sweet pea. The color of deep purple is strong and striking.It has a growing habit rather like that of a vine.
I'll have a second article tomorrow. Cheers Chris the Pipemaker
