(Gosford walkies #21)
Late winter is full of flowers here. Couple of weeks ago it was the golden wattle and now it's a couple of dozen plants.
Some sort of daisy. Possibly a marigold. Your guess is as good as mine.
No idea what this one's called either. It's a common plant in the bush and some people use it in their gardens. Tiny pink flowers on a low bush.
These are definitely daisies. Navy blue centres they've got. When they're purple and white they mainly stay short like this lot. When they're all white they grow in a metre-high bush.
God, I love the pink Magnolia denudata. Beautiful. Rush out and see them. They'll go in the first wind of Spring.
The buds are quite dark.
Then they open up a bit and you can see the insides are white.
Fully open and already faded a little by the sun. They fade to quite a pale pink sometimes. But mostly they've fallen from the tree before that. They shed their petals as soon as there's a bit of wind.
And wind there will be. Spring is almost upon us and Spring means wind and storms and rain. Beautiful.
