#BanksiaIntegrifolia, aka the coast banksia, is a tree that grows along the east coast of Australia. One of the most widely distributed Banksia species.

This one however is stunted and ground dwelling for some unknown reason (to me). Maybe because of competition (plenty of gumtrees here), self-propagated or damage, not sure.

But the woody branches look healthy enough and I’d suggest it’s longevity seems assured.

Only one bloom, but that’s good enough for me!

#Gumtree’s pre #sunset in #Centralvictoria #Australia a couple of weeks back.

The lowering sun hitting the trunks, branches and leaves illuminates the natural beauty of these iconic #Australian beauties.

I love the #Australian bush and all the colours and hues you observe at all times of the day.

Malva subovata, the #seamallow, is a species of flowering plant in the family Malvaceae, native to the shores of the western and central Mediterranean.

These flower profusely. I recall them years ago when I visited along the coastline of their natural habitat.

This beautiful, but sparse specimen in #caulfieldsouth #Australia, gives just enough to illustrate its flowering beauty.

#beautiful.

A gorgeous creeper of some sort in a #StKilda alleyway… easy to miss given it’s secluded locale.

I revisited this one a couple of weekends ago as couldn’t stop at the time.

These are the best shots that highlight the various autumn colours, with the brown wispy branches behind the leaves, layered over this wooden fence.

It was raining at the time and that highlighted the vibrant leaves, so too the #bluestones on the alleyway floor.

This was a treat, for mine.

#Warburton is beautiful this time of year.

This is a pic of a public garden aligning the #YarraRiver on a cool #autumn day.

Cloudy, overcast and around 15 degree’s C (60F). Pretty cold, but I’m welcoming the change of season with open arms given the obvious ‘visual’ spoils on offer!

That’s #MountVictoria in the background.

Foreground shows lush light green grass, with a myriad of greens, yellows and a bit of red which are trees in the distance (about 100 metres away) looking autumny! Closer to the right and left of shot are branches of lush gum trees and a hazy dark green mountain in the background, with grey whispy cloud cover for the sky.


Mount Donna Buang in #Victoria’s high country is home to this impressive #mosstodon display today.

We were up in the clouds; 10 degrees Celsius cooler at 4 deg C, than midway down the mountain.

No wonder #moss grows prolifically at the peak!

This will be covered in snow later this month I’d suggest and kids will be tobogganing down the hill laughing and having a ball of a time.

Deep green growths of moss, lush with life and colour growing in large patches (40cm in diameter) on medium sized grey boulders (from 1 to two metres long, 40-50 vm high) in the fog (clouds) in a densely wooded Australian bush setting.


Here are more #yucca… aka Adam’s needle and thread, it’s native to the southeastern United States. And thrives here in Melbs too!

Growing to 3 metres (10 feet) tall, it is an evergreen shrub that is highly valued in horticulture. So too, by all visual hedonists!!

#gorgeous.

Gosh I just love #geranium’s!

They’re such a fundamental (and staple) garden shrub that usually does well in any urban conditions.

We had heaps of these things in varying designs and colours in my childhood garden.

These are displayed along a footpath in #Brighton #Australia.

Don’t know what it is about light yellow coloured #roses that are lovely. They’re symbolic for me.

I know my late mother loved them and we had them in abundance at her final farewell some 20 years ago and I associate them with mum and her love of life and home gardening.

She had a keen green thumb and introduced me to the world of #flora but it’s only been in recent years I’ve ‘truly’ appreciated these gifts of nature.

Thanks mum ♥️

I think this is a Sorbaria sorbifolia, the #falsespiraea; it’s a species of flowering plant in the family Rosaceae.

If so, these heads will bloom further to display a furry/feathery white appearance in weeks to come.

Cannot wait!

This is in #camberwell #Australia.

Portulaca grandiflora - also goes by the name of #mossrose and a million other descriptions is a succulent flowering plant, native to southern Brazil, Argentina, and Uruguay.

They’re often grown in gardens for the benefit of you and I; visual hedonists!!

I love these. So pretty.

🙏💖

How lovely is this cute #Californiapoppy (#Eschscholziacalifornica) huh?

Also known as the golden poppy, California sunlight or cup of gold.

It is native to the United States and Mexico. It‘s grown as an ornamental plant flowering in summer (although I read with interest, usually spring in southern Australia, such as in #Victoria), with cup-shaped flowers in brilliant shades of red, orange and yellow (occasionally pink and white).

It is also used as food or a garnish.

Fun Fact; It became the official state flower of California in 1903.

These gorgeous #roses in #Cranbourne #Australia are just to die for!

The gorgeous deep purple and firm, well hydrated petals are testament to the heartiness of this plant, so too it’s gardener-carer.

It’s late in the season for roses to be displaying with so much form and health.

I really do love this one.

(It’s in my singing teacher’s garden, she’s a gorgeous woman).

A lovely pink #rose bush displaying proud in #McKinnon #Australia

The moderate weather of late has helped these lovely roses throughout Melbs hang on and see their days out in splendour, for us… who appreciate them.

#Gleditsiatriacanthos aka 'Sunburst' are still going strong here in Melbs.

These are two trees; one in #GlenIris, the other in #BentleighEast #Australia.

These usually have an abundant canopy.

Young foliage starts off a bright yellow colour and ripens to lime green. The two tone looks terrific in the morning sun!

Nigella sativa aka Black Cumin in the garden. These spectacular Blue flowers have edible seeds. That being said I did not plant these they rather were garden "volunteers" #nature #photography #nigella #cumin #NaturePhotography #flower #garden #flora #flowers

With their abundant crimson #blooms in December, pōhutukawa are known as the New Zealand #Christmas #tree. They are also a favourite food source of tūī, making this combo fairly iconic…
