Sunday saunter

Some of today’s wildflowers, photographed on our property, have been seen on previous weekend photoblog entries though today’s are all recent growth. The remainder of the photographs are of unrecorded (by me) plants.

An audioBlog accompanies these photographs [3.1 Mbytes, 6 min 0 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. The photographs are also included within the .mp3 file. View them via Apple’s iTunes artwork function on a PC or Mac, for example.

This member of the Heath family, with tiny flowers, is looking full of life.

Only recently identified by me, this is Lomandra longifolia, the Spiny-headed Mat-rush.

An unidentifed plant just beginning to flower. It could be a weed – but then again, a weed is just a plant out of place 🙂

    Think the bright pink, 5-petalled, flower is possibly ‘Crowea salingna’….. G

    Gordon, It is a pleasure once again to look at your photos. The macros of the flowers especially the ‘weed’ are very appealing.
