More flowers from the block

Following on from http://franmart.blogspot.com/2007/09/orchids.html here are some more flowers that have emerged later in the season.





This is the "standard" Kunzea ericoides which seems to be the initial coloniser of regenerating paddocks (if the brambles and briars don't get in first). In close-up it is obviously a really spectacular flower!






Here is a long shot up the track, showing the blooming K. ericoides across a paddock, together with a passing mushroom hunter!








This is the Blue Devil Eringyium rostratum, described by Ian Fraser as "an essential component of native grasslands".









Floating on the top dam we have Ottelia ovalifolia, which is apparently a native water plant.
