On seeds and flowers

When I am walking along the bush tracks I see small flowers – many, many different varieties. The book Native Plants of the Blue Mountains by Margaret Baker and Robin Corringham provides descriptions and photographs of more than 220 native plants. I am going to see how many of these I can spot as I go along.


Blue Mountains Trio -- Seed Pod 1

I am thinking this will be an easier task than identifying the trees because the flowers are more distinctive to my untrained eye than bark and gum leaves. Not that I am have had any success with naming the plants the produced the seed pods in today’s photograph yet.
