Kangaroo Paws

It is spring, so it is  time for our kangaroo paws to flower. These were taken at Wireless Hill, a large reserve, smack bang in the middle of an expensive suburb in Perth. The property developers would love the land for housing but thankfully it is gazetted as a flora reserve. I just love these red and green kangaroo paws. They are also the Western Australian State Floral Emblem.

  1. Thanks for showing me something I've never seen before. I love these beauties!

  2. Very unusual and very interesting.

  3. They are beautiful specimens. the stalks are so red. Mine haven't flowered this year??? A beautiful view from the hill.

  4. I had a plant when we lived in Brunei but I didn't know what it was until an Aussie friend came to visit. It was a red kangaroo paw!
    Oops I'm visiting from Blue Monday and realise I should have scrolled down a tad more. Oh well you gave me a lovely visit back to Australia. We left Melbourne in July so it's nice to keep up to date and close. I miss it so.
    I'm off to the right post now...what a numpty! Don't tell anyone will you? :$

  5. That good colors ...! An exquisite proposal! Wonderful flower!
