I can't name most of the flowers either, Square, but I love the pics. :D

Well I'd say that the fuchsia is looking rosy. ;)

Wow, those pics are incredible. Thanks for sharing. I've never seen Bluebells growing in the wild before.

One of the best things I've seen is the outback when the desert blooms. Just kilometers of colour, it's a sight to see. Here's a pic of one of my very favourite Aust wildflowers. It's called a Sturt Desert Pea. What Nanny Ogg would have to say about these I wouldn't hazard a guess :oops: .

Very pretty Sister, and must be quite a sight to see spread across the outback. :D

Square, Sister, those are beautiful!

Here are a couple pictures of our lilacs when they were still in bloom.

I realize I kind of cheated with those last few, but I was already here. :mrgreen:
