Lilies and other natives

 Exploring a part of our block which we don't often visit (a steep bit across a creek) we were pleased to find a very good crop of Common Fringe-lilies (Thysanotus tuberosus).

The two images following show a close up of the lilies and some surrounding Chrysocephalum apiculatum and a wider shot giving an idea of the density of the plants in an area totalling about 20m x 10m).  There were also isolated plants elsewhere.

Nearby was a nice collection of bluebells (Wahlenbergia sp); Hibbertia obtusifolia and Chrysocephalum semipapposum.

Finally I found a Pale Vanilla lily (Arthropodium milleflorum)
