We’d thought we’d seen it all to date, but now that are in “wildflower country”, we know what that means.

Advice from Geraldton was to visit the Mullewa Visitor Centre, where we received fantastic advice on where to find the rare Wreath Flowers and where to discover ORCHIDS, I have loved them for 40 or more years and we are both excited about the prospect of finding some. We had planned to travel through, but after hearing about two lovely walks and a drive

The Wreath Flowers are situated 10kms from the Pindar Pub, growing in gravel and sand along the side of the road. If we nurtured them at home, they probably wouldn’t grow!

The orchids were unbelievable – much larger than I’ve every seen a Spider Orchid, with the Nodding Greenhoods quite small and past their use by date – except for one we found.

We even saw more flowers than before, so here are a few of them. Sorry, but these areas don’t have a lot of historical info, just botanic gardens everywhere you go. Hope it’s not too boring for you.

The fragrance of the flowers hits you as soon as you get out of the car, but those Magno Men get the sneezes and have decided to stay in the car every stop we’ve had!!

    Hi Folks
    What great images of the native flora, Well done. Looks like you’re really enjoying this trip. I’n not sure you’ll be in a hurry to get back to this cold, wintery and sometimes wet place. Enjoy the warmth while you can.
