I love the endless photographic opportunities provided by world around me, from the abundance of nature in my own backyard to historic and scenic worldwide destinations.I am retired, beyond threescore years and ten.
Great shot Trish. I don’t think I’ve ever seen these.
Al, thank you ! These are endemic to southwestern W.A.

Great capture! I have not seen one of these before. What do they taste like?
Thanks for your comments Kathryn. To my knowledge they are not edible, but belong to the Kennedia genus, comprising 16 species, all native to Australia. They are evergreen climbing plants with woody stems.
Wonderful capture Trish
Thanks so much Larry for your wonderful comments and for accepting !
Just don’t tell me it’s edible, Trish. I couldn’t handle it. Great shot, though. You certainly do have a penchant for er…. the unusual.

GREAT presentation ..
Thank you very much Besant !
Well captured, we used to have one in the garden,but it took over. I like seeing these wild though
The colours are so unusual … the one in this shot was under cultivation.Thanks very much for your comments ! I think all the Kennedias tend to go a bit wild.
perfect shot, Trish!!
