What’s flowering today

An audioBlog accompanies these photographs [3 Mbytes, 8 min 31 sec duration]. The audio commentary is also distributed as a podcast. You need to subscribe to my RSS2 feed towards the bottom of the right hand column on this page and you need to use aggregator software capable of utilising this.

Warning: If spring flowers aren’t your thing, then you might want to give this photoblog a miss today 🙂

All these plants are indigenous to our property. This is to say, they have not been introduced by man, and have, probably, always been here.

Indigofera Australis
I had another go at photographing Indigofera Australis. It doesn’t look markedly different to the photograph I took a few days ago. It does give a good view of the flower buds lining up behind the one in flower, waiting their turn to bloom.

I think this member of the Heath family is Brachyloma Daphnoides, the Daphne Heath. My problem is that my photographs are 100 times better than those in the books from which I’m trying to identify these plants.

Again, as best I can from the resources available to me, this one looks like Daviesia Latifolia, the Hop Bitter Pea.

Sharp leaves
Hmmm, could be Melichrus Urceolatrus, the Urn Heath.

    1. Second photo probably Lissanthe strigosa not Brachyloma – leaves too narrow and anyway I’ve seen masses of this on your place.
    2. Everything else looks right but use lower case for the species epithet ie Daviesia = genus (upper case). latifolia = species epithet (lower case).

    3. Wow wonderful photos
