Australian travellogue: Wild flowers

Springtime in Western Australia is a heaven for anybody with an interest in flowers.

It's that time of the year when the plants shake off the winter to push through their new growth. When we were travelling around the south-western region, we could practically stop the car anywhere we liked and take in the sights around us. Yes, that was how bountiful the flowers were. But of course, not all of them were impressive. Some looked quite small and plain but generally, there were magnificent flowers everywhere.

Here is just a very small selection of the wild flowers we came across. Except for the yellow Banksia in the first picture, which was unusual from my perspective because the other Banksia flowers we came across were all red, I've absolutely no idea what the rest are!

Later: The business district
Previous: Kings Park
