Weekly Photo Challenge: Out of this world – The Boss


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!

As always
