Spring Festival King's Park 1.....

I thought after yesterdays rather 'icky' post something pretty was called for on this Sunday morning... Every year in September King's Park hosts the Spring Wildflower Festival (festival) and there are huge displays of wildflowers and plants from all over the world. I really should take more note of the names and where they originate, but somehow get caught up in the beauty of it all and forget the details....just a few of the flowers above are.. Everlastings, Kangaroo Paws, Boronia Blue Leschenaultia,Gilliam Bells, Wattle, Banksia and Bottlebrush....the smell as you walk through is blissful, the Boronia and Wattle smell just like.... Spring, funny that.....!!

  2. Well if the maroon flowers are the Gilliam Bells, I am won-over. I love the cornflower blue of the Lechenaultia ... I have lobelia just that shade.

    When does your son get married over here? When are you here from and to?

    Yesterday's post was a bit much to swallow (hehehe).

  16. You have cured the ache in my stomach from your post yesterday of the bird with a delight for the eyes in today's post.

    Perth was mentioned on the news in the USA the other day. They did a report about the satellite that is falling to earth and played a tape of a news report from 1979 when Skylab came down in the desert near Perth. They showed bits of interviews with Aussies who recovered bits of Skylab.

  21. These are lovely. It is a reminder that, while summer and flowery pictures are drawing to a close in the northern hemisphere, we can look forward to you and your southern blogger buddies to keep the color going . . .
