The second in a post of flowers from the reserve in the northern suburbs. There were so many flowers! I wonder if I will have time to return before they all fade. It is getting warm and sunny in teh coming week and many of the flowers will fade with teh warmth.
These are commonly called ‘milkmaids’ – they are everywhere, on long delicate stalks. So very pretty!
Cats paws – sort of like kangaroo paws, but much smaller, lower to the ground, but isn’t their colour glorious!
Here are the more iconic kangaroo paws. they just glow in the sunlight!
some odd ones – & I do not know their names:
I believe the first of these is called a tassel flower and comes in blue as well. Very pretty, especially when they are scattered throughout in quite large numbers. The second I think is a type of myrtle and it’s almost finished, but so very pretty and delicate.
This is called a pimela.
The first two of these are definitely the same flower, the third is not, but they are all beautiful. I should really know their names, shouldn’t I 🙂
Now – the peas – of various varieties and I know none of them 🙂 they grow on bushes of climb over things. they are all rather tiny and come in so many colours!
this first one is common even in people’s gardens. Called a native wisteria.
I would love to get more photos of this one. It is very striking!
But this one? It’s face is colourful enough…
but from the back it is astonishing!
I hope you enjoyed this small selection.
In the coming days, I will post more wildflower photos from MtLawleyShire and other areas.
