The Sturt Desert Pea is a striking flower that blooms roadside along highways and in other unexpected places.
When visiting mining regions up north my eyes constantly scan hoping I catch a glimpse of them.
To me, these gorgeous flowers, that bloom close to the ground in harsh clay earth look like aliens.
The centre is a huge glistening black ‘eye’, called ‘the boss’.
The flowers shines like satin and they grow in small clumps.
They are a visual feast!
