The Last of the Flannel Flowers…

6 Apr

Just yesterday I spotted a clump; a clump of Flannel Flowers. I thought I’d seen the last of these pretty Australian wildflowers until after winter had been and gone, but there it was, soldiering on.

I must own up and say that I’ve cheated: this photograph was taken months ago when their display was in its prime. Nevertheless, the specimen I saw was a reasonable one though it did have fewer flowers.

The simple beauty of these flowers makes them one of my favourite blooms.

    It must be wonderful to have such a variety of plants and bird wildlife wherever you go Margaret, and as always you entertain us with great photographs.

      It’s a really lovely park. Right now he first of the Wattles are in bloom. There is always something beautiful to see. 🙂

        Yes, I’ve never seen them before. How lucky you are!

    They grow in our local bushland park. It’s all but impossible to grow them in a garden. So, yes, I’m lucky to live near where they are. 🙂

    And what a delightful white they are! 🙂 I especially like their round noses.

    I love flannel flowers, but rarely have I seen them.
