For the last few days, I've been working on finding worthy greenhouses mostly from the USA and Europe. In the searches, I found all these wonderful flowers that are unique to Australia, so I thought I'd like to show some of the good things about English speaking people on the opposite hemisphere of planet Earth, aka Terra. One of the search engines I used provided this "for starters" teaser about Australian wildfloers:

By the way, I'm not much of a horticulturalist, but I'd like to start a garden this year because my years of quilting shop ownership gave me an irreversible susceptibility to good fabric and fiber art, the color wheel, and all things beautiful in printed materials, photographs, and designs. I have no idea of the names of any of the above flowers, but I'm going to see if I can identify the flowers from Down Unter better when all is said and done.

1. Desert Flame Chrysocephalum apiculatum

Oh, I read that one of the Australian provinces/states/territories (?) has 900 native flower species. My thoughts that entry #1 was all-knowing is not so.

One more for the road this morning that got my attention and is called "Pussy Tails"
