Wildflowers of Western Australia – Part II

This video collection of is Western Australian wildflowers that are predominantly pink or red in colour. The first two images are of the celebrated wreath flower, probably the most sought-after of all. They are considered rare but if conditions are right, as they were this year, they grow in abundance mostly on the verges of gravel roads. I might do a separate post on them so I can post more photos. The simple daisy shapes are different types of everlastings. Enjoy!
I created this video with the YouTube Slideshow Creator (http://www.youtube.com/upload)

That is sooo pretty. I thought that someone had planted two different plants together to form the wreath!

Lovely show Judy - I'm not familiar with many of those. How many seconds did you allow for each shot?

@JudyEv I think I've done mine a bit quick, I only did 4 seconds - I should have read this first. Yours looks perfect.

@jaboUK I think yours is fine - and very lovely. I'd probably make it 5 seconds next time though.

Told you l find wild flowers mixed too much to my liking,l prefer them to be like this image,my eyes enjoy them much more,just one or 3 colours.a garden/plot with 7 or 10 different wild flowers does not excite me at all

Everyone has their preferences don't they? Do you mean you like the flower at the top?

@Jessicalynnt I guess 'wild' means sort of 'cool'?

I assume the wreath flower must get its name because the center doesn't bloom?

That's right so it looks just like a wreath.

@JudyEv If you hadn't written the name of it I would just assume the rest hadn't bloomed yet. What an odd plant.

Thanks - again it was hard to decide what to put in and what to leave out. Some are quite inconspicuous on their own but pretty when on the bush with their mates.

Wow, the wreath is beautiful! I'm going to save your slideshow and watch tonight with some other things. I would love to see Australia. Your plant and animal life is SO different from ours.

I remember being blown away when I suddenly discovered all the strange animals from South America that have never had much publicity and that I'd never heard of. Hope you've enjoyed the slideshow by now.

What a pretty assortment of flowers... nice slideshow.... do someof them come and go depending on how much rainfall there is ?
