The scent these small pink flowers exuded… reminded me of fresh citrus tree blossoms.Screen Shot 2015-07-12 at 7.15.41 PM Screen Shot 2015-07-12 at 7.14.43 PM Screen Shot 2015-07-12 at 7.14.31 PM Screen Shot 2015-07-12 at 7.14.23 PM Screen Shot 2015-07-12 at 7.14.00 PM Screen Shot 2015-07-12 at 7.13.38 PM Screen Shot 2015-07-12 at 7.13.27 PM

It’s only the beginning of the wildflower season here in Western Australia… but that doesn’t mean there isn’t much out yet.

Yesterday before we arrived at the farm, we did a very quick detour to Lesueur National Park (I’ve posted about this amazing place a few times over the past several years).  The windy was chilly, however the sun warmed our backs and faces as we moved about the scrub looking to see what had already sprouted.

It was beautiful.  There were at least 40+ species out in the short time we spent looking at various stops throughout the park.

The weather, lack of flies and the smells (there were some gorgeous rose scented flowers that were intoxicating) it really could not have been a better day.

It was a short trip to Eneabba, we caught up with Brian and Tessa and their (very cute) grandson Jack.

Tessie sadly stayed behind this trip, but we’ll bring her into the city the next time we’re out again.

  1. Gorgeous flowers! Australia’s vegetation and landscape (photographed in this post) looks much alike to the succulent karoo vegetation and landscape in South Africa where I live. A post of all the wild flowers in one’s region is no bad idea.

    • Hello Jacques, yes I’ve noticed that as well there are reoccuring styles. Do you have any photographs of the similar flowers? There are over 800 types in that park alone. My partner and I will be travelling south to another region that has an even greater variety in September called Fitzgerald National Park. I’ll pop over to your blog now to see if you have any recent wildflower photographs. Thank you also for commenting. I hope we can compare flowers.

  2. Thank you again for sharing such beautiful photos. Jurien Bay to me is beautiful in certain season- I was waiting for any photos of geckos… lizards are abundant in the area 🙂
    It is a pleasure to see your photos and brings childhood memories, certainly brought smiles on my face 🙂
