Spring is floral at Fox Hill Hollow

Well what a treat!

We bought the land in September last year then spent all of October overseas and missed what has turned out to be the most visually awesome month to be at Fox Hill Hollow.  The grass is green and in between the trees the forest floor is blooming purple, yellow and white.

Here are some of the beautiful flowers that are native to our block of heaven.

  1. I think this is Donkey-Ears or D.Semiunulata.

2) I’m actually not sure what this is. Hopefully I’ll find out and get back to you!

3) This one looks to me like Daphne Heath (Brachyloma Daphnoides)

4) This is probably a wax lip orchid (Glossodia Major)

5) Now this has to be my favourite so far, a Twining Fringe-Lily aaahhhh

6)  I think this is Common Bartsia, we have it all over one area of the property (Parentucellia Latifolia).2015-10-03 07.46.37

7)  Another favourite spot of mine is in the forest. Here we find a carpet of Milkmaids (Burchardia Umbellata) and Early Nancy (Wurmbea Dioica). 2015-09-27 15.18.30

8) While some of these little yellow pom poms are probably pollen from the trees there are other areas of the land where they grow as plants. I am not sure what those are but they look mighty pretty and remind me of the flowers found in a Dr Zuss book.
