Native Flora, Royal National Park

Australian flora, a bunch of tiny flowers with long, curvy parts, all growing from a central ball, in the manner of a Chihuly glass sculpture

Yesterday we went for a walk in the nearby Royal National Park. This is my first springtime in Australia, and I’m fascinated with the native plants. One species of tree looks like it sheds its skin at this time of year – all of them are bursting out of their outer layer of bark. Many of the flowers are strange, complicated things that appear to have inspired some of Chihuly‘s works. Time for a trip to the Botanical Garden and/or to buy a book – I want to know more!
