Wireless Hill Park Wildflowers - September 14, 2014

Wireless Hill Park is in Ardross, Western Australia.  My Grandparents lived in nearby Alfred Cove and my Dad and his brothers and sister were raised in the area.  It was then during his childhood that my Dad developed a love of orchids which he would see in places like Wireless Hill.  We had a marvelous time this last Sunday as he took us for a walk through the park and showed us the many beautiful wildflowers that have just come into bloom.  

Red and Green Kangaroo Paw (Anigozanthos manglesii)

Donkey Orchid (Diuris corymbosa)

Blue Lady Orchid (Thelymitra crinita)

Spider Orchid (Caladenia georgei)

Sundew (Drosera ?)

Jug orchid (Pterostylis recurva) already at the end of its season.

Cowslip Orchid (Caladenia flava)

Rattle beak Orchid (Lyperanthus serratus)

Golden Conostylis? (Conostylis aurea)

Yellow Buttercups ?(Hibbertia hypericoides)
