Although they grow profusely everywhere you look, there are two regions in Western Australian synonymous with wildflowers at springtime, the South West and the Midwest.
This time in the South West I went looking for flowers in new places. New for me. They were always there. I stopped by Minninup Pool, just outside Collie. How many shades of yellow can one find? I had heard the underside of the blue enamel orchid is beautiful. It is.In nature, when differences come together, it creates nothing but spectacular beauty. A wild orchid.A bottlebrush waiting to bloom.I found hundreds of these white and pink lily like flowers in Margaret River.The flowers were growing on stalks a few feet high.And these poms of white found a place in wooded areas too.
I’m off again in a few hours, this time to the Midwest. I’m hoping I’m not too late for the flowers there.
Will be back with more to share with you.
Until next time

Stunning. Few orchids here this year. Too dry.
These are all beautiful, esp. the orchid – thanks so much for sharing them!
