Bold Park in October


We went for a walk in Bold Park yesterday. The orchids that were so noticeable last month have finished flowering, but there are plenty of other wildflowers in bloom at present. One-sided Bottlebrush (above) is about as good as it gets, and Parrot Bush (below) still has plenty of flowers though it is a bit past its best.


Diplopeltis huegelii is covered in delicate pink flowers.


Coastal Honeymyrtle is past its best, but still putting out plenty of flowers.


Hairy Yellow Pea is prettier (and less hairy) than you might guess from its common name.


And if you are lucky, you may see some Red-tailed Black Cockatoos feasting on the seed pods of Eucalyptus and Banskia species.
