Autumn in Queensland

May is late Autumn in Queensland, Australia.  These Golden Penda flowers are a special treat at this time of year.  This is an Australian wildflower and the shrubs are alive with bees.

Many streets have avenues of Golden Pendas planted along them as they are one of our most spectacular native trees.

Meredith, I  look forward to your  stories of being out and about in Tennessee!  It will be fascinating to see various parts of the world through local eyes.  What better way to discover new places in the world?

Welcome everyone!

Cheers,

Maria

  2. Very special and beautiful flowers:) Fun that it is late autumn when we have spring/early summer, although I knew that, of course… It is just one of the cool things with internet and the international “touch”. Thank you for sharing these flowers!
