MALLEE BUSHLAND FLOWERING
Growing in the side cut, how tough this plant must be - eutaxia - flowers are brown and yellow a very small pea shape .... the foliage is spikey....guess that is to keep animals from eating the plant. Not a very good plant to get a picture....so small.
What a wonderful place the Mallee is.......to some people it would just be Mallee trees, salt bush and weeds... ugh the weeds are everywhere.
If you look at the daisy bush pic,.....in the background the canola is flowering......This break crop is everywhere this year.......such a rich yellow......can see it for miles.....
The late Autumn and spring is flowering time.....plants go into survival mode during the hotter months of the year. So do I!!!
Hope you found the walk in the bush interesting.
Love to all.
take care, NANA ON THE FARM.
