Welcome to spring

It's the best time of year in Perth and many areas of WA - wildflower season!

I have been getting excited the last few weeks seeing more yellow (hibertia and wattle)appearing in the bushland around work (right).

Each day more flowers are appearing and I love creeping around it seeing what I can find (when it stops raining that is).

I am finding flowers I didn't see here last year like one of my favourites - the fringe lily. I had seen it once in Kings Park in Perth (the largest city park in the world!), but now I've found at least 4 plants right here.

above: Guinea flower (hibertia, approx 3cm wide) and fringe lillies (1cm wide).
