The sunshine bush

August 20, 2015 § 1 Comment

In the last week of July, I went for a late-afternoon wander through the Scrub.
It was quiet and cold.
The occasional magpie called.
A tiny mistletoe bird twittered on a branch.
Not many of the trees or plants were in flower.
And then I came across this:

It’s a Guinea flower (hibbertia).

Guinea flowers aren’t common in the scrub.
They are small bushes …



… showered with flowers
that seem like splashes of pure sunlight.
