Perth holiday - Part 4

One of the main reasons we were keen to go to Western Australia was the wildflowers. We had heard they were magnificent in spring and various tours showed wonderful places to see them. However, because of commitments back here we arrived a bit late for the best displays - or maybe our expectations were a bit coloured by the glossy advertising! But in various places there were certainly lovely flowers to be seen and this collage makes up for not seeing them in the large sweeps of colour we had imagined!

And speaking of colour... this display of colourful umbrellas over the entrance to the Kings Park Gift shop really tickled my fancy!
Back home now we are deeply grateful for such a lovely holiday - and a beautiful place to return to! Today is exactly one year since we moved in to our house in Orewa!
