A walk across the ridge above Galston Gorge this morning reveals a landscape spectacularly clothed in colours and new life. Be sure to click on the images to get full resolution. Boronia Ledifolia (Sydney Boronia) covers the ground in bursts of pink: The white Grevillia is an unusual sight on this ridge: And here is a magnificent old deeply burned scribbly gum sheltering a young Banksia. Spectacular in this area is the scarlet Grevillea Punicea. I just love the intensity of its colour– and it’s wonderfully sculptured shape. You can see why it is commonly called “Spider Flower” Along this stretch we also ran into a mob of Yellow tailed, yellow cheeked black cockatoos. Such magnificent birds with a massive wing span of up to a metre. They must have been finding some new Casuarina nuts to chew in this area. . More spectacular Boronias And one amazing Grevillea Punicea that looks totally overladen with fruit At the close of the walk bouqets of Boronias as we finally made it back down to the Gorge, still hugging the early morning darkness.
