Flannel Flowers: Tapering Off?

Flannel Flowers

In our local bushland park, the Flannel Flowers seem to be tapering off. No longer are the blooms so vigorous and plentiful. It seems as though the plants are soldiering on rather than bursting with exuberance.

Nevertheless, it’s been a very fine year for these icons of Australian flora. Who remembers the early Australian postage stamps that featured them? As a former philatelist, my hand goes up!

    There’s always next year though I confess, I’d miss something as vivid as there about.

    They are beautiful and stand out so against the darker ground. Another first time view for me. Thanks.
