Royal National Park, Curra Moors. 7th November 2012.

This walk had been on my 'to do' list from when I first started doing Flora Friday. Overcast skies for most of the near 8 kilometer walk were appreciated as we have had some pretty warm days recently.
A number of new species for me have kept my head in books and on the net and still haven't been able to sort them out, oh well, the idea of this blog was to give me something to do.
