The golden hour painted everything gold. Not that these everlastings needed it. Great thing about quiet country roads are the opportunities to just pull to the side and admire the plants β˜€πŸŒ» #xerochrysum subundulatum #asteraceae

Took me by surprise just how colourful the Australian Alps are during the summer. There were pops of white, yellow, blue (my favourite), and unexpectedly, this rich fuchsia. From my trip with @alpine_flora_of_australia and @zeebachi. #stylidium montana #stylidiaceae

I often rely on morphospecies names when I come across plants I don't know. That is, a name for a plant based on what it looks like. Way back when, I called these guys "curly wurlies". And curly wurlies seemed to stick. #hakea gibbosa #proteaceae
