Beechworth wildflowers 1

I penned a little piece about Spring Creek yesterday, after a walk Leanne and I took around the Gorge here where we live. Thought it might be nice to share some of Leanne’s flower pics from the walk. I haven’t re-blogged anything before, so hope this works.

Frank and I went on a rambling hike this afternoon along Spring Creek – I took our camera and managed to get a few pics of some lovely small flowers and fungi.

Here’s some of what we saw today, with what I believe are the plant names, sourced from:

  • Field Guide To Australian Wildflowers by Denise Greig
  • A Field Companion to Australian Fungi by Bruce Fuhrer
  • Wildflowers of the Granite Belt published by Granite Borders Landcare

If I’m mistaken on any names, do feel welcome to let me know, it’ll be much appreciated!
