Mountain devils

Devils live in our forest, everywhere, all year round.

Mountain Devil (Lambertia Formosa)

It seems to be the fruit rather than the flower that gives this plant its common name – “woody with a short beak and a long horn on each of 2 valves: the famous Mountain Devil” (Native Plants of Blue Mountains by Baker and Cunningham). I can’t say I have ever noticed the fruit. I must look next time.

Words to Walk with
John 8:44 from the Holy Bible – New International Version
"He [the devil] was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies."
