A walk in the Aussie bush


By pip_c


The other day I went for a walk in our local bushland. It’s very close to our house. Although it is only a small area of bushland, there are lots of beautiful native flowers out right now.
Would you care to join me on my walk……

I loved these little beauties…

And some more….

I really liked these too… they’re grevilleas I think.

Isn’t nature beautiful !

Pittosporum is flowering!

A very big mushroom

Some nice lichen on a tree.

And I couldn’t resist these lovely ferns!!!!

What’s that I hear? Have you ever thought about scratch and sniff computer screens? Well…. maybe not….. The ferns are next to a stinky stormwater drain!!!!!!

Lovely ‘bells’

Some more pretties

as you say Pip nature is amazing, you have some really lovely 'wild'? flowers, are the orchid like flowers just that..? and may I say that one weird mushroom-- thought that our 'puffballs' were unusual!

Thanks Hywel, Mavis, Pam, Sandra, Annella, Linda, Holly and Bb :o))))))

Some of them are introduced species i think. The 'bells' don't look like natives to me.
