My first exposure to WA's wonderful wildflowers was shown in Karijini National Park. They were every where, looking beautiful against the rich brown / red earth in this iron ore rich country. They also looked quite spectacular against the back drop on rolling hills, deep gorges, spinifex grass & white snappy gum trees. It's a wonder plants grow at all as the rainfall isn't that great either - usually. Early 2011 had a wetter season than normal & so the flowers were more prolific.
I don't have a name for many of the flowers & I will update names if I find 1 - if you know a flower name please feel free to let me know :)
I had my 55th birthday in Karijini, & wouldn't have wanted to spend it anywhere else (around that time) it was that pleasurable to drive through despite the dusty dirt roads :)
part 2 coming soon, as I have probably more than enough pics for the Kalbarri area & just south to Jurien Bay on the coast & north east to Morawa, which is covered in flowers
