Flourish

One of the joys of living in Western Australia is this time of year.  As a kid growing up in Australia you hear about the ‘wildflowers’ and see photos but figure it’s just that, select images and stories.  Turns out that it’s all that and more.  As of about last week, for example, the highway that I drive on to my day job has begun to erupt in colour; native bushes covered in pink, white and yellow flowers.  Wattle trees too are beginning to bloom with soft yellow pompoms and soon carpets of everlastings, orchids and others will begin blooming from about 700ks north of Perth to 400ks south.  I’m hoping ot make a definite effort to chase the wildflowers this year and hope to be able to share them here.  For now, a bright little bush spotted in John Forrest National Park.

Swirling

Hovea Creek hurtles across smooth polished rocks that just two months ago were stagnant pools.
