2016 Wildflower Calendar – Long List

This is the ‘long list’ for a potential 2017 Wildflower Calendar.  They are pictures from suburban Perth, in conservation areas, parks and verge gardens.  They are all native wildflowers and I am going to have a hard time choosing!


I have no doubt forgotten some, but it is primarily from these I will choose 12 – or 14 (counting the cover).  aren’t I going to have fun!

    All beautiful, the orchids, particularly my favourite, the pink fairy, stand out for me. Well done😎🌻


    • It’s a pink fairy? Oh wow! I only recognized it as an archid as I was going through the photos for this list. It’s from Kings Park so next year – I must remember. There were a few photos of that flower but it was a windy day and none turned out all that well. Thank you 🙂

    I was poised to write my response when I saw the comment from KDKH, and that made me pause. I DO like the idea of doing honour to one blossom – I think there is a particular attraction generated by shots of that kind. But the colour-splash from the large bouquets would look spectacular on someone’s wall (where a calendar would presumably be placed) … so, as you’ve said, you’re in for a hard (but pleasurable) time making your selection!

    They are all beautiful! I would also have a hard time choosing. Personally, I prefer pictures that honor one blossom -feeling a bit overwhelmed with the large bouquets. It is hard to appreciate them as easily as one blossom alone. Good luck with your selection process!!


    • and there were so many to choose from let alone this shortened long list! And yes, they are beautiful. If I can afford to make a calendar this year, I will have a hard time choosing! Thanks 🙂
