Mid-October Wildflower update

Wow time has flown by and it is over halfway through Spring! With the warmer weather this spring, our wildflowers here in Perth have just gone past the peak. But they are only just past the peak flowering and most flowers are still showing their glorious colours.

The daisies in the Wandoo woodlands are at there most brilliant and dazzling in white and yellow! There are also patches of Blue Lechenaultia along the road verges in the Darling Ranges and Wandoo Woodlands. The gorgeous yellow Common Popflowers are also along some verges in the Wandoo woodlands.

There are carpets of yellow and white Daisies on the floor of the Wandoo woodlands in mid to late October.

Some of the beautiful flowers that have been out in the last week are:
