Wildflowers and so much more.....


I went up to Kings Park on Sunday to take photos of the wildflowers for you but I thought eh! how different can they be from here and here so as token flower shots the one above (taken sitting down on the path to get the perspective causing much interest from passers by haha) and below the winding road up the hill to the top of Kings Park lined with everlastings.....
Kings Park has got to be right up there at the top of the list of places to visit when you come to Perth, there  really is something for everyone here. With the Wildflower Festival happening right now there are so many related events, free concerts, the most popular with the little ones and their parents being the Adorable Florables show below, I enjoyed the little fella in the foreground kicking the footy probably thinking 'I'm not looking at any sissy old flowers' haha!....
But  really at anytime of the year Kings Park is a wonderful family destination for picnics, exploring little nooks and crannies, the views across the sweeping lawns are spectacular. I have taken some shots of one or two of the many memorials scattered around the park which I'll post another time. Meanwhile it's been a super relaxing long weekend, back to normal tomorrow, I hope your week is heading in the right direction (?), take care and stay safe.....

  3. Bonjour dear Gracie,
    By the way, is the correct to say "Gracie"or"Grace"? :)
    What wonderful Spring there, I'm envious because this year the Spring here in Lux was so weird, with rainy days...wind and so on. Lucky you, the weather there looks great! Your pictures are beautiful postcards, thanks for sharing!
    hugs

  4. That little fellow steals the (florable) show! (Which looks hilariously adorable!). I love the idea of a wildflower festival, one can't ever tire of flowers :) I'd also love to just sit there all day and soak up that beautiful light - hope it was a restful long weekend!

  5. Nice pics of a lovely public park! The "footy" boy is cute, but the pic I like best is the young lad at the edge of the fountain pool. Great shot!

  6. I do so envy your seasons now since you have the beauty of wildflowers. Even tho our falling leaves are vivid and bright, I dread what follows. Enjoy the season in Perth!!

  14. Hi there stranger:) I'm sorry I was gone for awhile. Hiking over the weekends has limited my time on blogger and I so do love the great outdoors. The cooler weather makes me smile and you??? Spring is in the air. Your shots remind me of our spring here.....warmer breezes but without that winter chill. Really perfection with lots of plant color and happy people. Beautiful. But it's still 100 degrees here!!!

  15. This brought back wonderful memories Grace, almost a year ago to the day that I was exploring Kings Park. One must spend at least half a day there to see it all and oh, what a wonderful Gift Store!!

  17. Looks wonderful, fabulous views too. Seeing the massed wildflowers at the Olympics site made me realise how spectacular they can be, so this must be wonderful. I think I might like that show too, especially if I could take my granddaughter.
