A Short Walk In The Grampians #02

It is October, and the Wildflower season is just beginning so we should see a few plants doing this. 

 

The Grampians area has numerous unique shrubs and wildflowers, as well as a range of wild animals. It is quite cool today, so it is unlikely we will encounter any of the gorgeous reptiles that live here.

Magnifique feuillage, j'aime la couleur des fleurs.
Ray: Certaines fleurs sauvages Grampians sont des choses magnifiques, Martine.
Such a beautiful plant! And I like the photo of your family!
Ray: The wildflowers are lovely things here, Elizabeth.

Jake, like Ben, is very outdoorsy, sporty and strong!
Un endroit luxuriant , cela promet de belles photos
Jolie petite famille
Bonne journée
Ray: Je vais montrer quelques fleurs sauvages à nouveau, leter dans la série, Claudine.

C'était une superbe sortie en famille. Le jour précédent, nous étions en train d'escalader sur un site voisin.

I personally would be glad of the cool conditions - better for hiking but also if it keeps the reptiles out of the way, these is less risk of an excruciating death or being consumed whole in one gulp.
Ray: I prefer bushwalking in cool/cold conditions, Alan...too hot and sticky otherwise.

Thee red flowers are very pretty and I like the spiky bushes.
Ray: Those spiky bushes are a very unusual, ancient plant...the new name is Grass Tree, replacing the politically incorrect Black Boy...lovely stuff, and I'll show it in flower later in the series.

Never seen a plant like this before Ray, very interesting..
Ray: There are hundreds of plant species unique to this small region of southern Strayah, Chris. I'll show the Grass Tree in flower later in the series.

Wonderful flowers - oh, your son with the baby looks very similar to you, and I like to Marvin again!
Ray: Sons Jake do look quite like me, Philine, and most people say we three have similar personalities also.

This image is four years old...Mawin is now as tall as son Jake.

Your son lol,s a lot like you Ray. His daughter has a pretty face.
Ray: Jake and I do look a lot alike, Chad. Son Ben is in the frame tomorrow...he also looks quite similar, as you will see, but is a lot bigger than Jake and I.
That looks like some sort of Hebe Ray
Ray: It might be a Hebe, Bill...they are native to Australia and New Zealand.
It is certainly a bneautiful plant whatever its species. I love the family shot, Dads picture of the next two generations of Storeys.
Ray: It was a lot of fun with part of the family, Brian.
Both plants featured today are wonderful, especially the tall grassy bushes. Nice looking at old photos of the kids too.
Ray: Thank you, Mary. I love Australian flora.
Back in Oz for a visit, Ray?
Ray: This series comes from a trip I made 4 years ago, Tom.
i really like the reds and greens pictured together, Ray - looks vibrant and succulent.
Ray: It is a lovely shrub, Ayush.
