So... I'm a bit of a nerd about wildflowers. In my defence, our home town of Esperance, in Western Australia, is located between the Fitzgerald Biosphere and the Great Western Woodlands so that puts us right in the thick of some exciting wildflower action. A few of my wildflower snaps in this blog were taken in Mount Barker and in my garden (all WA natives) but most are from the wild and wonderful bushland in and around Esperance.
As we wave goodbye to Springtime, I wanted to share these images from our wildflower hunts during 2015. And this is just a glimpse of the incredible biodiversity in our neck o' the woods!
A note to the nomenclature purists - I've done my best to name each flower but there were still a few that escaped me. If you can help name or re-name any species, please feel free to chime in with a comment or send us an email and I'll stand corrected!

It rained and the roof leaks, but the cat has found a patch of sunshine and the self-sown seedlings are taking over the garden...life abounds even in the dry!
