In my part of the country of Australia, we are enjoying a spring that sees a bursting of colour on various native trees. Most prolific in the bush is Grevillea Robusta, more commonly known as Silky Oak. This grows wild as the seeds are spread easily by the wind as well as birds eating it.
The Grevillea that is most widely grown in the domestic garden is called ‘Robyn Gordon’.
The Robusta has a profusion of bright golden flowers whereas, I could probably say, most other grevilleas are a pale pink or on the red spectrum.
I have attached some pictures below. I hope you enjoy them.
Ok so I know I have posted Roses before but these had exquisite perfume and a beauty to match. I wish we could all scratch and sniff.
I am seeing a lot of native flowers coming into bloom right now. The main one I see in the bush where I currently live is Grevillea x grandiflora which is the silky oak. I haven’t yet been in a position where I could stop to take a photo of them, but promise I will soon. In the meantime, here is a photo of a glorious Eucalypt trees that I spotted at a rest stop.
The roses looked very beautiful this morning. I hope you like them too.
This is a floral inflorescence from a young eucalyptus tree in my garden. Stunningly beautiful. Don’t you agree?
The pink carpet underneath the Camellia in my back garden brightens a dreary winters day.
