This is the beautifully coloured opened seedpod of the Needlewood..or Hakea Leucoptera one of my favourite indigenous plants :) When it has its profuse creamy scented flowers..the noise of many many bees and wasps and flies searching for food amongst the sharp-tipped ‘leaves’ is amazing!!

    ohhhh so lovely Binjy… something about the beauty of plants for me this morning.. I like!

  • Many thanks, linaji :)) the colour of the freshly opened pods is wonderfully vibrant..but fades quickly in the sun…

    glad you liked it.

    Nice view of the colours in the pod, hakeas are underrated plants I think,. Most have a rich honey perfume on a warm day.
