So just a short post from me today, but I promise images from our camping trip and the amazing wildflowers out there very soon. Watch this place!
On our return from our trip we stayed a couple of nights at my family's property in the central wheatbelt. The grain crops are looking amazing, and harvest will commence in the next 3 or 4 weeks. This is wheat in the process of ripening and drying off ready for harvest.
The wildflowers are also blooming along the road verges and in the bush blocks.
Below you can see (common names only) - from top corner left - Featherflower, Dampiera, Cone Flower, Mottlecah, Flame Grevillea, One-sided Bottlebrush, Pop Flower, and Everlastings.
The Mottlecah (Eucalyptus macrocarpa) is an amazing plant. We found quite a lot of it north west of Corrigin along Copestakes-Williams Rd and along the Corrigin-Wogerlin Rd. It is a very straggly spreading large bush/tree 1-5 metres tall. The red flowers are 5-8cm across, with a silver cap (you can see below) before flowering. They have thick, flat, silvery leaves 5-8cm long and 3-6cm wide. There range is from Geraldton to Jurien, Wagin and Moora.
The route through the central wheatbelt is on the way to the iconic Wave Rock. Here's a fun video from UTube - Rocking Out on the Pathways to Wave Rock -
That is is from me today, but I'll be back next week with more on our travels and the amazing spring wildflowers of Western Australia.
Thank you so much for stopping by. I value your comments and look forward to hearing from you. I will try to visit your blogs in return. Have a wonderful week.
