I can go back in memory to 2010 and spend time searching through the hundreds of photographs I took of the Western Australian wild flower season. We spent 3 months slowly, very slowly, driving and living in Matilda, our small camper van home, along the wild flower trail from Broome in northern WA to Perth in the south. 2010 was a perfect year, just enough winter rain meant the flowers were in magnificent abundance.
It was a dream come true for me to be here reveling in one of the planets exceptional displays. A profusion of beauty.
Here is a gallery of some of the more unusual wild flowers from Western Australia.
Unfortunately I do not know the names of most of these beauties, I just enjoyed the experience of seeing them and capturing their images to live in my mind.
Jude has some beautiful wild dog roses to show you this week. Go over for a look.
“Jude says: This month I want to see native wild flowers found in the hedgerows, woodlands, farmland, meadows, by the coast, up a mountain, on the heath and even in your own garden. Basically those plants that haven’t been planted, but occur naturally, although specifically planted wild flower meadows can be included. Wild flowers provide food for humans and wildlife and are usually hardy, resilient and well adapted to the climate and soils, and yes sadly often referred to as weeds”
