Mouse-like seeds



Today in Bungendore Park under Aramadale we did a walk and came across  this mouse lookalike seed. No idea what the tree is called.

Banksias






Did a 18km hike in Yanchep National Park today; the Cockatoo walk trail, and noticed some of the banksia's got new flower cones coming up. While the old ones were devoured by the hundreds of cockatoos in the trees.

Marri flowers in summer





There is this marri in front of our house, dwarfed by the huge Moreton Bay fig tree and grown on an angle. But this year it is flowering more abundant since we have seen for the last years. Zooming with bees and regular flocks of black cockatoos feast on the flowers.

Passion fruit flowers




My wild passion fruit flowers. Unfortunately it's not the real bush carrying so many flowers as these do not become juicy fruits...
See the difference in the stamen of the two flowers.
