Springtime Wildflowers of Western Australia

Standard

Tomorrow, 1st September, marks the beginning of Spring in Western Australia (WA). In this beautiful time of the year, our mediterranean climate sees more than 12,000 wildflower species colour our diverse landscape for atleast 5 months, one of the longest wildflower seasons.Exotic clusters of vibrant colours and amazing blankets of flowers adorn the earth, including the white everlastings which cover fields and known locally as ‘snow season’. The most beautiful displays are in the Golden Outback and Coral Coast regions of Western Australia, and I hope to see in October when I embark on a roadtrip north.

So I wish to share with you the splendor of Spring, with an array of wildflowers we are blessed with in my state of Australia:

BRIDAL RAINBOW

WRINKLE-SEEDED LOBELIA

RED WILDFLOWER

BLUE DEVIL

COWSLIP

BLUE WILDFLOWER

SALT AND PEPPER

BOOKLEAF

BORONIA

WOOLYHEAD

EUCALYPT

AN ASSORTMENT OF WA WILDFLOWERS

Springtime in WA provides us with fine and sunny weather (23 degrees), even during our short and mild winter, the sun shines often!. The weather, the coastal lifestyle and diversity of WA is why I love living here so much. To the north we have the Coral Coast, with stunning beaches, whale sharks, the South West, with giant ancient forests, and vineyards, the wildlife, red desert, and aquatic waters of the North West, and natural wonderland of the Golden Outback with its ghost towns and cattle stations, then our carefree and multicultural city Perth.
