Wildflowers From The South of Western Australia. 12th September 2014

The first of two Fridays in Western Australia.

The flora today was photographed in the Ravensthorpe and Fitzroy River National Park localities in Western Australia. We were on a Ross Tours Wildflower Trip led by Angus Stewart, from the ABC's Gardening Australia show.

The whole Wildflower Trip can be seen on my other blog at  Gumnuts and Other Stuff.
