The best thing about bushwalking in The Grampians for two days was photographing all the wildflowers that are currently in bloom. According to the Official Visitor Guide we collected from the Information Centre, there are over 1,000 species of wildflowers that bloom with stunning colour in spring, and we couldn’t have picked a better time to see the variety of flowers on offer.
Sure, we didn’t see over 1,000 of them, but we certainly did see a lot.
Goodness, Clare, even the name itself – the Nodding Blue Lily – is as fairy-like and otherworldly as your spectacular picture suggests. I wasn’t aware blue could be so truly blue. We lack the words I think to adequately describe its color.
And I love the name The Grampians. That just screams adventure.
So looking forward to seeing it all unfold.
Cheers to you both!
They were spectacularly blue, bordering on purple, much like the only purple pencil in the box, and the one I wore out quicker than any other. The Grampians were amazing (and exhausting) and the tales of our adventures will post this morning. I hope you enjoy reading about what we got up to.
Love the photos of the flowers, the Sundews would have to be my favourites.
They were so gorgeous, and tiny. I had several efforts at getting a god shot.
The flowers of spring! How beautiful – you and your camera shots are amazing – enjoy
Thank you Denise,
I’m glad you enjoyed seeing the spring wildflowers. They certainly were beautiful.
