We have had a week of travelling the wildflower way in Western Australia’s mid north and have had a ball and seen lots of beautiful flowers.

We have seen many traditional and well known wildflowers, but also some tiny and elusive orchids. I love hunting for terrestrial orchids, it feels like a great treasure hunt that is sometimes very rewarding and sometimes very disappointing.

This area of Western Australia is one of the most diverse wildflower areas in the world.

Lets go have a look…
