This is the third post of WA flowers. These are almost entirely flowers I fotografed in the forest.
Small "red" gums that make up the majority of the trees in this part of the bush. Not far away was a small area of Radiata forest that planted to provide lumber for building and other work.
A palm-like tree is being cared for by a junior forester.
All these buds are waiting to open, and there is no hint of the colour that will emerge.
I would guess from the bud leaves that there is some red in the flowers.
I saw this little round headed puff of dried flower through the gap in the fotograf. So I enlarged it and here it is in the post.
I am still working on getting the fotos more sharply focussed. The fault no longer lies with the camera.
This little plant is the size of a hand. I clearly is a plant designed to survive in poor dry soils.
This plant has small flowers. Can you see them. They are little white gems.
The background is a radiate pine. The foreground is a vine with stunning pink-red blooms with just a slash of yellow.
This foto shows the leaves of the vine more clearly. It is an interesting exercise to look at the leaves and guess the appearance of the flowers. It is impossible to guess accurately
