Treasure trove

I was pleased to be driving out on Mount Hay road because the open forest and windswept heath is usually a treasure trove of flowers. I was not disappointed.

Look at the detail in these tiny bouquets I found growing near the waratahs. I don't have a name for them.

[I think I've got the name now. It's Sprawling Smokebush (Conospermum tenuifolium)]

Words to walk with:
Using the word bouquet in my post reminded me of an old fashioned soap and talcum powder fragrance from my childhood -- Cashmere Bouquet. Check out the vintage advertisement.
