Shock, horror …

… but today’s post contains not a single bird!

The bush is coming to life after a bitterly cold and dry winter. Some nice rain in recent days provides some hope of a sustained and colourful spring. These wildflowers give a promise of future bounty.

    Lovely to see spring is upon us Geoff. beautiful pics.

  2. Hi Geoff, great close-ups. One thing i’m curious about is the name Tall Errienellum. It looks to be a Drosera (Sundew). Has the genus had a recent name change as I havent been able to google it anywhere? I hope not because I like the name Drosera.
    Not trying to be cocky, just curious,

  3. Hi Craig – no there hasn’t been a name change … I hate them too. Have a look at this post that will hopefully solve the puzzle.

    Cheers, geoff

  4. Thanks Geoff. It all becomes clear now. I had a moment of dread that they changed the genus!
