Orchids! Sundews! Leschenaultia! The wildflowers of Western Australia are starting to bloom.

Be still my heart. ❤

The timing couldn’t be more perfect. I need distraction and gentle exercise. Fresh air and all the colours of the rainbow.

Bushwalking at a snail pace to hunt for native orchids and treasures emerging is a balm to my soul (and the very very sore joints).

Enough words… Time to just look and enjoy.

I hope these flowers from my block of land in WA make you feel as good as they make me feel.

Wheel Sundews… Not long now and these will have tiny orange flowers 😊

I just want to share photo after photo. These flowers are small but oh so beautiful and there are more photos to come. Watch this space 🌸.

    1. Hehe thanks Ali. Ooh guess what? I now have two roses! I know. This time last year I wasn’t keen. Tiffany HT climbing roses to go in my little flower garden below the shed. Such a lovely pink!

  1. They’re just fabulous, Nat, such wonderful shapes and colours. I’ve read so much about your wildflowers season over there and would love, one day to see it. I’m happy to see you onblog again, been wondering how you’re faring. Flowers are balm for the soul, aren’t they.

  2. I rarely get an opportunity to use the word exquisite, but thanks to your pictures of those wildflowers I can today. They’re exquisite. Good to see you back.

      1. All Sixes on Saturdays so far. It should still be there. Hang on, I did accidently post one I’d just started on Friday (instead of saving it) and immediately deleted it and started again.

    1. Thanks Maureen. I saw a post about Bridgetown on the reader but for some reason couldn’t find the post. Bridgie is where my family are from so I was hoping to read it if you still have it?
