Wildflowers in Season 2

Other wildflowers that we saw in bloom in the bushland of Kings Park recently included Star of Bethlehem (above) and Grey Cottonheads (below).

The grasstrees (below, centre) will also come into bloom soon, though their long spear-like flower head is still covered in unopened buds, rather than flowers.
