Wildflowers close to home

For the last two Sundays we have been exploring wildflowers near home. The first Sunday we went to Kings Park where there is the usual display of wildflowers at this time of year. We enjoyed a visit to the cafe afterwards and ran into some friends who were celebrating Father’s Day at the cafe with their two sons, partners, and grand children.

Our next expedition was to Wireless Hill, going by car this time. There is a special wildflower walk and we spent ages walking around. I was working with a macro lens, trying to capture as much as I good, whilst Stephen was just observing.

Here are some of my favourites:

I can’t identify all of the flowers, but these delightful ones are called Granny’s Bonnets

There were heaps of donkey orchids on the walk and we liked this photo because they contrast with the bark of the tree behind
