I have two small bushes of this beautiful Geraldton Wax plant in my backyard. I believe the correct name is Chamelaucium Uncinatum but I prefer its common name. I found this little flower quite fascinating and a little bit alien when viewed close up as it seems as though it’s sending out tentacles or antennae – and saying “Earth to Wax Plant, propogate or exterminate” – I think I’ve been watching too much Dr Who!

I love the challenge of capturing what I see, admire and love. To share it with you is an added bonus. Photography to me is recording history. Please explore my galleries and enjoy♥

    Hi Bev, Great shot!!! I once got into trouble in WA for picking these on the road side,lol, all these drivers going past abused us, did not know it was not allowed, have not seen this color before, Beautiful Work!!! :D

  • Hi Sharon for the comment and yes I did know it was against the law to pick natives in the wild. I must admit many years ago we used to do this too especially with Christmas Bells but too risky today.

    So I found out, lol, had spent most of my life in WA and never knew this, perhaps because it was the back of beyond and did not matter there!!! Soon learnt though!!! :D
