A Spring Coastal Heathland walk
Today we took the walk from Crackneck Lookout to the Trig station.
Last Spring the Flannel Flowers were spectacular so this spring September 2019 we returned to enjoy the same. We were a little early. Recommend you wait till mid October to see acres of wild Flannel Flowers. For us they were mostly baby buds still hiding from the world.
However the spring brought wildflowers, with lots of new colour to the bush. Spectacular – purple boronias, powerful pink eriostemons australiensis, red grevilleas, bright blue dampiera, yellow ispogon, dillwynias, gompholobiums, bossiaeas, yellow hakea. Add to this the vibrant Cabbage Tree Palms and the Grass trees and the vistas of the sea through the bush made for a wonderful morning. The trees and variety of barks and colours I will leave till a later ‘Tree’ post.
It is becoming a tradition to take this walk each spring –its sandy path and bird life serendading us along the path invigorates us for the rest of the day.
Can you see Michael amidst the beauty of the grass tree and palms ?
