The superb Grevillea..



I'm so sick and tired of being sick and tired that I was determined yesterday to get out and about in the fresh air. There are few places that resuscitate the spirit as well as Kings Park, and I was pleased to see that although there are still a few weeks until official spring and the spring wildflower festival many of the Australian natives were too impatient to wait! The glorious colours of the fanciful Grevillea Superb, straight out of the camera here, appreciated also by the birds and the bees...


If you look carefully centre below you will see the honey eating Wattlebird among the Kangaroo paws. Really looking forward to the wildflower festival, not just Australian natives but plants from around the world. Have a super Sunday, take care and stay safe...

  5. Oh, Grace... when you bring along spring it means... bad times for us. Autumn. Winter, gahhh. Darkness, cold.
    But I´m happy for you and one day we´ll come to see spring in Perth, too.
    And, well, all August we still do have!

  15. I hope you're feeling better.
    Your flowers are unlike the sorts you're likely to find around here. And the Wattlebird reminds me of roadrunners which you can find in desert areas of the U.S.

  22. I'm wishing for happy skies to follow you everywhere, and I'm thinking a walk around here will be a start! I just heard on the radio how taking a walk through the forest, woods, and especially taking in the scents, blossoms and everything there, will warm and heal our soul. Well, guess we knew that, but it sure adds something to hear it, you know what I mean!
