Friday Flowers: Aussie Flora

Last week I shared some more traditional flower photos taken in Canberra in late March. This week I want to share some of the close-ups of Aussie flora which I snapped. Once again I got the scheduling wrong: seems I wanted to schedule the date Aussie fashion and reversed the order. Sorry.

Canberra gets cold (by our standards) in winter and extremely hot in summer. Even though it’s the nation’s capital you don’t have to go far to see Aussie wildlife like kangaroos grazing the paddocks. Once you’re out of the (not very large) urban area it’s definitely rural.

The trees and plants can be quite different and often the gum trees have peeling bark dropping from their trunks.

Australian native trees mix it up with imported deciduous trees. By now the latter will be tinged with red.

I hope these flowers have brought happiness to your day wherever you are.
