More precious than gold


I kept an eye out for the last flowers of the autumn/winter banksias.

Musing:
Psalm 19:9-11 the Holy Bible
"The fear of the LORD is pure,
enduring forever.
The ordinances of the LORD are sure
and altogether righteous.
They are more precious than gold,
than much pure gold;
they are sweeter than honey,
than honey from the comb.
By them is your servant warned;
in keeping them there is great reward."

  1. I had to look up banksia first since I've never seen one or heard of it before. Very interesting plant, especially its importance to Australia's fauna. The one in your photo is lovely!

  2. Hilda, there a quite a lot of different types of banksia's. I have made it a bit of a habit taking pictures of them, so search banksia on this blog and you'll see more.

  3. This is the second time this evening that I've seen a flower I've only heard of. The other is a jacaranda. This banksia is very unusual to my eye. Very, very pretty.
