Spring around MtLawleyShire

Flowers everywhere.

September was the wettest month for over 100 years in Perth, which means I haven’t been able to see any wildflowers yet.  But there were the occasional walks around my little ‘shire’ and there were gardens filled with flowers.

A rare grevillea at Mt Lawley campus of Edith Cowan University, between falls of rain and just before the big wind storm started (it lasted 3 days!).grevillea

Marigolds in someone’s garden (the owner of this garden is a lovely old lady with the sweetest old dog who often shares her powered chair)




a purple iris in one of those gardens, and buds on a tree (no, I don’t know its name but love the colour):

Hawthorn, I think (sweet-smelling), in someone’s garden:

    You are so lucky… we as yet have had no rain… which does not bode well for the summer…


    • & we are still getting some rain, but the nights are warming. We haven’t had too many warm days yet – one that reached 30 last week, but down near 20 again this week. It makes me dread teh coming summer though… I really hope you get some rain soon.
