4/12/2016 – More Fun with Chris and Bruce
Having seen this beautiful area once before, (going home from Dwellingup) I thought it would be a great place to take Chris and Bruce for a bush walk near the city.
There were some pretty wildflowers out (as above) that I haven’t been able to find the names of. I am very frustrated, and I have a book of Australian Wildflowers but they don’t seem to be in it!
Early on, Chris and Bruce notice this shy lizard that was hiding by the side of the path. Any excuse for having a practice with the camera. The next two photos are Chris’s.
Beautiful close up.
Showing us what he had for breakfast!
Moving on, some lovely purple flowers I can’t find the name of. Sister, Chris tells me these are Mulla Mulla! The picture in the book is less rounded, but they do look similar.
And this is my close up that I am very happy with.
This is the Grape Grevillea (Grevillea bipinnatifida).
Chris and I wanted some photos of us together, “Just walk naturally” she is telling me as we both start clowning around.
Here we are in a less guarded moment, hats and sunnies on, enjoying the Australian bush.
We finally get to the top where there is a great view of the river and dam. See the gorgeous orange tree to the left. These are definitely bee attracting trees.
And I got a close up of the bright, attractive plus a couple of bees.
