Kings Park in December
A dazzling display of Kangaroo Paws greet the visitors to Kings Park in December. On this visit I was fortunate to add to my wildflower collection with species of Verticordias, Eremophilas, Banksias, Mallees and the critically endangered Ghost Wattle in the conservation section of Kings Park, many of which I had not previously photographed. Irrespective of the time of the year, there are always Wildflowers to be found in the park.
