Scarlet Runner

We recently saw our first Scarlet Runner (Kennedia prostrate, also known as Running Postman) flower for the season in Kings Park. This plant can also be found in Bold Park (though not in flower yet), across the southwest of Western Australia, and all the other southern states. It flowers April-Nov.

V is for View from Kings Park

The View from Kings Park is iconic and is one of the first things people think of when they think about Perth. While this technically isn’t a place or object, this view is a source of inspiration for many people and has inspired many creative works of art including paintings, writings, photographs, and now papercuts (thanks to my creative project). 183 more words

Common Hovea

While we were walking along the bushland trails in Kings Park recently, we spotted these purple flowers hiding in the undergrowth. They are Common Hovea (Hovea trisperma), which despite its common name, isn’t actually all that common in Perth. 41 more words
