Australian Wildflowers : Here’s More

15 Oct

Tiny white flowers growing near the river

A rare park flower

Unfortunately I’m not a botanist, and, since identifying plants solely from reference books is both difficult and potentially flawed, when in doubt I’ll leave it to others to put names to flowers.

Certainly, you don’t need specialist or even general knowledge of such flora to appreciate their beauty. Whether understated and subtle, or unashamedly spectacular, our wildflowers have their own appeal.

These photos have been taken during recent weeks in Sydney, Australia.

Next time you’re in native parkland, why not make a special effort to keep your eyes peeled for our charming native flowering plants? Who knows what you will find!

    Somewhere I have a lovely little book of Australian wildflowers (still packed from the last move no doubt!) I used it while painting a wildflower folk art platter. Very pretty pics.

      Thanks: I’m lucky to live near such a charming place. Hope to do further posts about other beautiful wildflowers!
