As I wrote about last week, and as requested by Nature on the Edge here are some photographs of the smaller plants, such as Ivy Leaf Violets, Rice Flowers, Pale Sundews and Goodenias which seem to be flourishing this year, with the wet weather and prolonged cooler temperatures. We’ve had carpets of colour in the grass surrounding the house as well as up the back in the bushland.
I’m writing this when it is late (and I have to get up early) so this is just a taste! More to come later on in the week.
Goodenias are thick on the ground this year.
For four years, the Ivy-Leaf Violets have really only grown in one small spot. This year, they are quite prolific.
The Pale Sundews are growing on all of the paths through the bushland, in the grass near the house, around the dam – just about everywhere really!
In many places, a few species of wildflowers are growing together. Here we have Rice Flowers, Goodenia and Pale Sundews.
