Travelling with my home on my back and in no hurry to get anywhere

Wild about the wildflowers in WA


How lucky am I to be travelling through wildflower country in Western Australia in spring! One of the things that I can’t get over is how beautiful the roadsides are. They look like they have been landscaped with mass plantings of colourful flowers, nicely rounded shrubbery that looks like it has been clipped into shape, the occasional rock – and it’s all natural. This is not the best example as mostly I was driving by oohing and aahing and forgot to take photos – but I can tell you the images will never leave my memory even if they didn’t make it to the camera!

 There is not going to be much story here, just photos. If I know the name of the flower I will include it in the caption underneath.

I couldn’t work out what this was but it looks like a hyacinth flower, don’t you think?

  2. Hi Rose, what a beautiful experience – they are just divine. As are your photos 🙂 I just love the orchids. Wish I could transplant all of them into my garden. Safe travels, Lots of Love.
